This morning Ellen Tanner joins us to explore why the church needs our elders. In a culture that lives in fear and denial of death, what might seniors have to offer to us? At a time when newer is better and novel is true, can we make space for receiving tradition and wisdom? The message is anchored in Proverbs 4.1-13 and, we hope, will increase our sense of gratitude for the way God has made the church an intergenerational and interdependent community.
