Two of my sons simultaneously notified me that I should listen to a recent sermon by Rob Bell on the topic I brought up a couple of posts ago from my vacation musings. It’s a kind of Theology of Aging that we’ll be addressing later this year at church. But let me encourage you to take time to listen. It’s called “The Village Elder” from August 22, 2010.

So we’re not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace.
