I deeply appreciate the older friends in my life


I just got off the phone with a man in his 70’s.  Someone who has taught in a bible school and pastored for 25 years.  Last night I shared communion with people some of whom are their 60’s and 70’s  The night before I was with another couple of retirement age as I helped with a trip to the hospital.

I love these folks.  I’ve been in all kinds of house churches, discussions and committees with church leaders and if there isn’t a senior there, something is missing.  Some of the most radical people I know are over 70.  They have more than just wisdom, they have a peace that eludes most of us that have only been around the block once or twice.
