The Elderly Matter…

By Patrick Hawthorne

Church-Elderly-Forget

While scrolling through Facebook, I came across the following blog by Josh Buice of DBG Christian Blogs and Sermons. “Dear Church-Don’t Overlook and Undervalue the Elderly.”  I highly recommend that you give it a read especially if you are in a position of authority within your church.

The following is a paragraph from his post:

One of the sad realities is that statistically older people are closer to eternity (according to the numbers and based on the mere scale of the average life expectancy rule). When you consider how many elderly unbelievers make up a single community, it should cause us to weep that they’re rarely targeted with the gospel. They’re more often overlooked and forgotten as local churches do everything under the sun to reach younger families.

Be blessed…

  1. What a sad commentary! One reason why I no longer attend a denominational church. Your link did not work for me, but this one did: http://www.deliveredbygrace.com/?s=elderly

    This is something of concern for me. I love our chruch and the elderly. Bringing an elderly to Christ might not be cool in some people’s eyes, but its the last stop call and very important.
    On that note I have written in the past about ethnic churches in light of the elderly. This made me think about that.
