Older Women in the Church

“Why don’t older women serve in the church?”

This question, asked on a Christian message board years ago, stopped me in my tracks and stayed with me ever since.

As older Christian women, we should never have an “I served my time, let others do it” attitude.

On the other hand, we may not be able to serve in the ways we always have or even in the official ministries of the church.

Join me at The Perennial Gen where I am guest posting today on the topic Why Older Women Don’t Serve and tomorrow on Ways Older Women Can Serve.

  1. Hi Barbara, I just wanted to let you know that I followed you over to Perrenial Gen and thoroughly enjoyed your well-written article on ministry as we age.

Let me know what you think. I'd love to hear from you, but please keep it civil. Thanks!
