Spiritual Gifts and Aging

Dear Friends,
While certain limitations affect us as we age, J.I. Packer, whose recent book on aging gave me a fresh view of the
future, warns that we ought not to behave as though spiritual gifts and ministry skills wither with age. They don’t. What happens, rather, is that they atrophy with disuse.
