grey nomad (plural grey nomads)

  1. (Australia) A retired person who travels independently and for an extended period within their own country, particularly in a caravan or motor home.
  2. A grey nomad is someone who is 55 or older and is taking a long term camping trip around Australia. Although they may travel in lots of different kinds of rigs such as motor homes, caravans, camper trailers and tents, grey nomads can be characterised by their sense of adventure, humour and their camaraderie.”

 

I had never heard of the term “grey nomads” but they have their own definition in the wikipedia dictionary so they must be an important bunch of people! Turns out there is website after website all about Grey Nomads! An Australian phenomenon for the past couple of decades.

 

Love this. “A person characterised by their sense of adventure, humour and their camaraderie.” What better person could you find to be working in the Kingdom of God. You might have retired from your earthly job, but your heavenly job is just gearing up. We are calling for Grey Nomads to be praying for communities as they travel around QLD and WA. Come and be a part of a tribe that has a purpose bigger than your own individual one. If you would like hints and ideas of how to pray for the communities throughout QLD and WA, and connection with others doing the same whilst travelling, please touch base with Ron and Paula Turner based in Queensland (rppkturner@bigpond.com) or Jill Birt in Western Australia (jillbirtwa@gmail.com). They are ready and waiting to hear from you.
