In the 1940s, The Adventures of Superman was a radio sensation. Kids across the country huddled around their sets as the Man of Steel leapt off the page and over the airwaves. Although Superman had been fighting crime in print since 1938, the weekly audio episodes fleshed out his storyline even further.

But it would be self-righteous to say that mine is “the Christian position” and that any other is not “Christian.”
If there is one common question I receive from young or new pastors, it is this: How do I lead the senior adults in my church?
I tend to say two things. First, you must genuinely love them. Secondly, you must realize that they have a great deal to offer you.
