EP – 117 The Grandparent Vocation

Our conversation with Richard Olson

The Cool Grandpa Podcast

Richard “Dick” Olson has been a pastor since 1960. Although he is now retired and Dick continues to write and be engaged in building understanding between faiths with his interfaith work and writings. Dick has recently written an important book, The Grandparent Vocation: Wisdom, Legacies, and Spiritual Growth.

In this book, Dick has put forth the idea that being a grandparent is a calling or vocation; if we decide to view our role as such. You will enjoy this conversation, and hopefully, it will provide you with a new and thoughtful way to view your role as a grandfather and grandparent.

Sharing is the best way to help me spread the word about the importance of grandfathers in the lives of their grandchildren and families.
