I am a long way from retiring (I hope). Given my age I probably have another 20 years or so of active ministry to go. But at some point, I’ll retire. I’ll try to have more time with kids (and grandkids?). I’ll have projects I want done. I’ll have some travel to do. But I hope I don’t lose the sense of being “missional” in the world, of trying to reach those persons God brings into my life with the love and grace of Christ.
In short, I hope I’m able to have the perspective of the woman in this video as she looks at a “missional retirement.”
