Opinion: Ageism in the church

Recently, the Crusty Old Dean published a blog post on ageism in the church.  He was responding to the age demographics of the nominees put forward by the Joint Nominating Committee.  COD noted that “60% of the nominees were over the age of 60, and 81% were over the age of 50.”  His theory is that this is due to systemic ageism against young people.  As a young Episcopalian myself, I can vouch for there being a lot of obstacles […]
