Published by: MennoMedia

By 2030, almost one-third of North Americans will be over age 65. How will this affect the church?
Author Elsie Rempel believes that the swelling ranks of new seniors represent a huge spiritual resource. In Please Pass the Faith she draws from real life and from Christian formation experts in helping seniors and other adults foster relationships with children and youth. She also offers practical ideas for integrating children and youth into church life-all the while nurturing one's own spiritual life as an elder.
"Each page sings Rempel's commitment to faith transmission through activities, presence, and storytelling."
—Marlene Harder Bogard, minister of Christian formation, Western District Conference of Mennonite Church USA
