*Mission Focus for February – Aging and FaithFeb 03, 2018
The mission focus for February is aging and faith. Beth W. tells about a personal experience: I was blessed to have great grandparents, grandparents, parents, and great aunts who were all faith-filled and active members in their churches. That is until they became unable to drive themselves or had difficulty getting around. Occasional visits by the pastor or “assigned” visitors helped bridge the isolation from the church but when my father’s church changed pastors, he became an unknown quantity. This once vibrant choir member and preaching deacon felt forgotten and left to nurture his faith alone. Does faith formation at BLC happen cradle to grave? Who feels forgotten? What more can we all do?
