Abstract:

The purpose of this study is to ascertain to some degree how much of the retirementtransition experience is dream and how much is dilemma. The study is limited in scope--a limitation by design in that time constraints prevented extensive investigators. In all probability, it will raise more questions than it will answer. Nevertheless, some questions and concerns will be clearly indicated and some possible answers will be offered in the conclusion. No attempt was made to weight the data nor to make comparisons of one religious denomination with another--especially in terms of the role the endorsing agents have or the role the chaplains expect them to have. Church structure, in some cases, is reflected and must be addressed in fairness to each participant and each denomination represented in the study. For the most part, I have tried to let the chaplains and endorsers speak for themselves.
