About EncourAGEnet

EncourAGEnet's purpose is linking, equipping, encouraging, and celebrating post-retirement service.


LEA EncourAGEnet was established in 2008. Among the Network's goals are to

·        prepare LEA members for post-retirement service

·        showcase examples of post-retirement service options

·        disseminate information about opportunities for service and resource people and  materials

·        encourage LEA connection to non-members by offering access to an e-mail distribution list, website, and Shaping the Future magazine.

Two tiny excerpts from an upcoming feature article on retirement by Rich Cohrs…

·         The public usually frowns upon talking to yourself, especially if you have a hard time hearing and must constantly ask, “What did you say?”

·         To teach one’s spouse the correct way to do something may not be the best purpose in life.

Finally, if you would like to listen to some Lenten hymns, many of which might not be familiar to Lutherans, check out these top 40 worship songs for Lent.
