Last Saturday I was at Twin Rocks Friends Camp on the Oregon coast to pick up my daughter. One of the people I saw during my brief time there was the young woman who is the chair of the camp board. I feel fortunate to know people younger than myself who are doing such good work. There was a period of time several years ago when I clearly saw an older generation of leadership, but felt uncertain about who would replace them.

Before 1993 the President of the United States had always been older than me. Bill Clinton is 10 months younger. My doctor is much younger than I am. The same is true of my pastor. It's exciting to see a constantly growing number of people younger than myself who are capable, insightful, and committed.
