Item Description...
Overview
How can the black church fully and successfully forge ahead without recognizing the contributions, wisdom, knowledge, and insight of those who laid the foundation for its existence today? The authors of Our Help in Ages Past proclaim it cannot. Saucer and Elster issue a wake-up call to black churches everywhere: a wake up call to recognize the past and to reap the benefits of all the elderly have to offer, and are waiting to give. Our Help in Ages Past issues a challenge to the members and leadership of African American churches to make concerted efforts to meet the needs of the elderly in churches and in the larger community. This book offers guidance for acknowledging and responding to the needs of the very ones who have gone before, those whose sacrifices and commitments have made the church what it is today, while issuing an invitation to make use of the many ministry gifts older people have to offer.
