The elder statesman conversation

Walk me through what you were thinking...
Is that action really wise???
Trust me, as one who's gone through it/see it before...

Churches should be a place where conversations begin with the above statements.

Ideally, they will occur between an older and a younger Christian.

And you can tell when these significant conversations are absent as believers find themselves in predicaments which, when looking back, they recognize could have avoided with a dose of solid advice.

It is the role, particularly of older guys (notice I didn't say the minister!), to develop the culture and cultivate the relationships where this valuable advice can be given and heeded.
