The Rhythms of Life – Hit the Mark — 5 Comments

  1. In answer to the last question, I don't think there is a simple answer. After sixty years in the Church fifty spent in hands-on involvement in all departments I feel like the old nag put out to pasture! Our lesson puts it so clearly.. There is a season for everything. When we reach our autumn years we usually have acquired a lifetime of experience which we long to share with the younger generations. Members in the summer of life should be training the youth.. those who will be following in their footsteps. Leaders do not know it all... there is always something to learn - and that is where the seniors have a part to play. Use the grannies and grandpas to tell the kids stories, involve them in boards and committees. One sight I shall never forget was the beauty of the aspen trees during a vist to Colorado... like splashes of sunshine. Give us seniors a chance to add some sunshine in the Church! The winter will come all too soon when we shall rest - awaiting the resurrection and spring with Jesus!

    • Maureen, I love your reply. Everyone has value and are a part of the body. We should fine solutions to the tension some feel on this issue between our aged leaders and younger aspiring leaders. One way I always suggest is to simply talk to each other, not about each other. Heart to heart talking goes a long way.

  2. As an octogenarian, I for one have said, "change is a bad word". We are satisfied with life as usual. The younger generation is full of change. Always looking for something different. Forgetting that the older generation is usually much wiser. There are often exceptions however.

  3. I believe the merge between the young and the old guard is the answer to the question above. Old school needs new school and vice versa. We need to strike the balance between the two.
