Sometimes No Answers

Dan Parotti

Shani and I looked at each other but exchanged no words. I held her hand as Dr. Curran came in with a quiet ‘Good morning’—not his usual sunny greeting. He connected the new device and sat close for a listen.

“Sometimes there are no answers for this.”

God-Orchestrated Sidewinders

Candace Gaeta

God can use every detail of our lives for His glory if we will cooperate and lean into His plan. An out-of-place back and an old gospel song led to a series of unexpected miracles.

Some of God’s best work may occur during these unplanned sidewinders, on the road to our destination. Stay alert, and appreciate the journey!

Divine Transitions

Wes Wick

We’re continually struck by the similarities of college graduation and retirement. Of course, it’s right to celebrate past educational and vocational achievements, but it’s incomplete if we don’t ask, “What’s next?”

Let’s do what we can to publicly champion and help shape the new frontiers ahead, for both early and later-life milestones.

Dream Forward!

Wes Wick

One major drawback of circled-wagon age segmentation is a stifling of the Spirit. It can also spill over into racial and socio-economic segregation, where we mainly look out for the interests of others like ourselves.

Dying, Dead ... Or Just Dormant?

Wes Wick

We’ve discovered while working with adults over fifty that some dormant periods are common.

Where we get into trouble as leaders is mistaking temporary setbacks for signs of death, “the beginning of the end”. We move prematurely into thinking days of fruitfulness will never return.

Pushing Through Setbacks

Perry Hamilton

Little did I know that just minutes after the above photo was taken that I would lose complete control of the left side of my body.

Like the leader of a local faith community who approached Jesus and confessed he was dealing with both faith and doubt, I am dealing with uncertainty as I am confessing my faith.

The 'Wow' Factor

Wes Wick

We don’t serve to wow others, but God can sure use willing hearts to help inspire.

Never underestimate the value of meaningfully engaging the very young and very old in serving. Don’t write them off … they have special capacity to motivate others.

Boldly GO!

Gary Geesey

Retirement was never about unplugging from serving, sharing, and giving ... or going. This was in our DNA; this kind of living wasn’t going away. So we positioned ourselves for being available, useful, even as we made plans for travel in our motorhome.

Are You Living Your Dream?

Wes Wick

With a simple heart pivot, God can transform present vocational or situational perspectives so that we can readily attest, “YES! I’m right where God wants me for now, living out His dream for my life.”

Afterglows

Judy Popineau Wick

In these last days of 2018 and in this new year ahead with life’s busyness, we hope you’ll take time for afterglows with loved ones. 

And may all of our lives - lived out in the afterglow of Jesus coming to save us – reflect His joy, grace and deeper appreciation for His Word.

Home With Jesus

Wes Wick

We’ve heard some people at his ripe age of ninety declare that they’ve outlived all of their friends. Not Papa Don. He had a constant stream of friends and family—all ages—visiting and calling him in his final days—and showing up at his memorial celebration.

Plugging In

Wes Wick

We need the Holy Spirit actively involved in our lives, both individually and corporately. We can’t leave the power cord unplugged. We need the Holy Spirit to help us overcome fear, at all stages of life, perhaps even more in later years as some of our natural strength dissipates. He is our Advocate, Helper, and Comforter.

Are We Assets or Liabilities?

Wes Wick

One challenge we face with Christian adults on the plus side of fifty … is the fact that Jesus went to the cross at age thirty-three. We don’t have accounts of Him traversing the pre-frail, frail, and dependent years.

We do, though, get to observe what He was doing as He approached death: praying, serving, and making/shaping disciples.

More Than a Buzz Word

Wes Wick

Intergenerational may sometimes sound like a buzz word or a passing fad churches may or may not find appealing or relevant. Because the word itself doesn’t appear in Scripture, some see it as a new, experimental, optional concept.

But, digging deeper, it’s clear God intends for all of us to have healthy, intentional relationships extending beyond our peer group, both up and down the age ladder—and both inside and outside our extended families.

Savoring Seasons

Wes Wick

Actively serving God in our robust years often carries over into the pre-frail and frail years—adding special meaning, purpose, relationships, and joy. If we refuse to take risks and choose not to serve when our health is good, starting when our strength dissipates is unlikely.

Looking Out for the Interests of Others

Wes Wick

"Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others." Philippians 2:4

It's so easy to get caught up in looking out for our own interests. I know it is meant more broadly, but I like to interpret 'others' to mean those who might otherwise be viewed as competitors. It's becomes a great reminder that we're all in this together. A 2:4 One special!

A Godly Leader's Legacy

Wes Wick

Beyond his address, eloquence, and influence, we love the humility and integrity of this great Christian leader.

Thank God for the integrity of both the message and the messenger!

Sideline Celebration!

Wes Wick

We know longevity in professional sports is different than life, but there comes a time when the sidelines become a better fit than the playing field. While no one shows up for a game just to watch the sidelines, there is a whole lot of meaningful activity going on just beyond those out-of-bounds markers.

May Our Character Line Up with Our Prayers!

Wes Wick

We love how God works up and down the generational chain, using our kids and grandkids to challenge us to live lives worthy of respect. This generation to generation thing isn’t only moving from oldest to youngest. God wants to use younger adults, teens, children, even babies—to continue building His character in us.
