I was really minded yesterday how life really goes around in circles.
We start out with our parents taking care of us, and we end up taking care of our parents.
I got to deliver some cookies and crafts that the church made to those who are not able to leave their homes all the time.
Some invited us in to have a small chat.
And talking to them, I realized that it’s not that much different from talking to youth. Sure, the language and cultural references differ, but a lot of the needs felt the same.
Having been in youth ministry, and only youth ministry, this is a new experience and a new challenge in my ministry. The elderly are really neat people and I love hearing their stories and life experiences. Some sound outlandish, but they are entertaining.
I wonder what my stories will be like when I become that age.
