Helpers in the Lord’s Church.
In the Lord’s church, we are obligated to find our answers in the Word of God, and not depend on the trends of the prevailing culture. To find out what the role of older women is, all we need to do is read and practice what is written in Titus 2, verses 1-5:
1 But speak thou the things which become sound doctrine:
2 That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, sound in faith, in charity, in patience.
3 The aged women likewise, that they be in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things;
4 That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children,
5 To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed.
These verses lay out things that the churches of Christ need from older women. These needs will always be with us from generation to generation.To see more of Lady Lydia’s tract click here, feel free to download and print: Lydia’s Tract Or you can try this link to see the same version via a google doc. https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B8SA_sehQ0H8d1VXMm5nT0VkakE
