As full time ministers look towards retirement, what transitional preparation do you believe is needed and what would you like to see happen?

The C/E, perhaps like other denominations, has no defined policy of support regarding full time ministers retiring and facing issues of loss of home, community, spiritual base and needing to find somewhere to live and new outlets for their gifts. There is to add into the pot, the whole area of letting go and discovering life continues post retirement so that the psychology of retirement is transformed from the negative into a positive encounter with the aging process.
