Today’s church scene is filled with young, hip Christian voices, but Mary DeMuth argues that our focus on youth may be causing us to miss out. She writes, “I believe we miss out on the breadth and depth of the Christian life when we marginalize or dismiss those who have walked with Jesus for decades, who have successfully moved away from Me-First, Ego-driven Christianity and have settled into selfless service. Who have learned the beautiful art of finishing well, of practicing long obedience in the same direction.”
We still need our matriarchs and patriarchs in the faith, and it’s our loss when we sideline those valuable voices.
