What would happen in our churches if we paid more attention to the well that restores and equips us in our life together? We would experience healthier churches. When our churches are healthy, we are nurturing and equipping people to follow Jesus into the lives of others and into God’s mission in the world. We bear fruit that nurtures others.As we bear fruit, we share the faith with people without hope, we do justice, we practice hospitality, and we are agents of healing. In other words, we are the body of Christ. If the context permits, there will be numerical growth. But no matter the numbers, there will always be spiritual, emotional, and personal growth. When lives change communities change. I cannot think of better leaders for this movement than our older adults.
