But, with getting older and more cagey, your statement about empty promises, so called “prophetic words” disappointing people at times, rings very true. Middle-aged or older people drift away, and sometimes head to anabaptist or benedictine spirituality. But the very young can be really damaged, as we are finding out about in various reports. The simplicity and stillness, in some very traditional forms of worship, can be an antidote and a blessing.
