"One thing that drew me to our church was the old people. We visited a few churches in the area [before joining this one], but I’d walk in and look around and be like, everyone here is just like me–young couples with young kids. They can’t help me. They don’t know any more about this than I do."
–male, 35, overheard at our men’s retreat Friday night.
Never underestimate the power and importance of community. We all need a Paul in our life. And a Timothy. And a Silas. An Ester. A Pheobe. A Rahab. A Matthew. Countless others who we lock arms with and journey with.
Give it up for the old people.
