Children's Church (literally)

There are great things about being young. But are there great things about being old? The answer is yes even though it seems so unnatural for me to say so given that I'm the product of my culture. We are so infatuated with youth that we easily forget that lessons are learned and wisdom can be gained with the passing of time. 

The Bible therefore values both the young as well as the old and puts significant emphasis upon the need for the mature to lead. 

So why is it then that the church's ministry models are built around a youth led paradigm?

Food for thought as we discuss chapter 3 of Ordinary on Tuesday, April 7th.
