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.
