“Do you really believe God would ask you to do something like this in the twilight years of your life?” asked the young pastor.
Seventy-year old Dylan set his cup down a little too hard. The coffee splashed out of it onto the table.
“Excuse me!” Dylan proclaimed.
The young pastor cleared his throat and sipped coffee while Dylan wiped the spilt liquid up with a napkin.
“Shouldn’t you just enjoy your children and family for the remaining years of your life? After all, you’ve pretty much run your race. What can you really accomplish this late in the game?” said the young pastor.
Dylan stood up, put his hands on the table and leaned toward him.
“I don’t have any answers right now,” Dylan proclaimed three levels louder than normal. The people sitting nearby stopped their activities and stared at them.
“As far as my legacy, I’m going out to make a new one because I’m not satisfied with mine. And mistakes? Or my age? I couldn’t care less about either one right now. I just want to stay in the fight until I take my last breath.” (Excerpt from Still in the Fight)
Dylan and Jane Matthews, a seventy-year old married couple, decided to toss religious orthodoxy aside. So, they quit sitting in pews, walked out the doors of their institutional church and followed the leading of the Holy Spirit into their divine callings. What began as a way to do church differently ended up being a life and death battle to save the city of San Francisco.
Are the adventures of Dylan and Jane blueprints for other senior citizens? Why not? Our legacies in Christ are not finished until we breathe our last breaths.
Still in the Fight is a must-read novel for all senior citizens!
