Aging Gracefully (VIDEO)

This video from Real Ministries features a sound clip of pastor Francis Chan talking about how Christians often lose perspective as we age.

Chan says, "Respectfully, I don't meet a lot of elderly that are really living like they're about to see Jesus and say goodbye to the things of this world and letting go of that stuff."

Chan also says, "The church is in dire need of elderly people that are living radically for their faith."

There are numerous ways that retirees can serve the body of Christ. For example, the movie The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry shows a retiree mentoring young children and encouraging them to read the Bible.
