I’m not sure who first said it, but it’s become pretty much of a commonly held belief now that 80 is the new 60. As a leader and participant in the Jesus Movement of the early 1970s, I’ll believe anything that makes me younger. The truth is that age is in your head. There are 20-year-olds who are older than me and 80-year-olds who are younger.
Truth of the matter is, we all want to be one age — engaged. Plugged in. Connected. Here among those who are seeking to bring the message of the Jesus Movement forward, we’re all one age — awake.
I wrote a song in 1970 called “Song of Salvation” and one of the lines in that song was: “See that train, boy, pulling [into/out of] the station/Get on board now, sweeping the nation.” I sang it both ways — “pulling into the station” sometimes and “pulling out of the station” other times. I could never decide, so I sang whatever seemed right at the time. If I sang it “pulling out of the station,” that meant something new was starting up — certainly something we all experienced in the early ‘70s. If I sang it “pulling into the station,” that meant that the end was near, and there wasn’t much time to get right with God, capturing the apocalyptic nature of the Jesus movement.
Today, I most often sing “pulling out of the station,” because something is stirring among younger Christians and I want to be a part of it, while some of my older friends are pulling into the station, ready to call it quits. Not me.
It is time for you to evaluate whether you need to first “pull into the station” because the end is near, and there isn’t much time to get right with God. Get right with Jesus, and then hop on board the next train out, as we move out of the station into something new that is stirring in all of us. It is the new frontier and this new frontier is called — Grace Turned Outward.
Are we over 60 going to be content to just coast into the station at the end of our lives oblivious to the changing world we live in and content to float on home watching some movie about the way we were? Or are we going to wake up, turn around and head back out on the morning train into the world as it is, looking to build bridges — bridges into the culture, and bridges to the next generation as they seek to figure out what faith means in their world. Let’s face it: It’s not our world anymore; it’s theirs. Wait long enough and we’ll all be gone anyway, so who cares about us? It’s not about us.
It’s time to go. While much of the industry is celebrating a 50-year history (The Jesus People Oral History project at the Billy Graham Center, Wheaton College, and its resulting conference at Biola University, the 2021 movie, Jesus Music, the “Love Song” documentary, and the 2023 movie, Jesus Revolution), it is time to close the book on the Jesus Movement and go meet Christ outside the camp. If God is going to do something new in the world, it won’t be inside. It will be out; and it will have nothing to do with the Christian subculture, Christian music, CCM, politics, or religion. It will be outside of everything Christian, and it will be entirely new.
Dear Mr Fischer
S true about hopping on the train. We would miss Jesus if we didn’t come aboard. I can never say enough about how important it is to be a part of the greatest life we could live by having our Savior Jesus Christ be a part of this always.
