How old is too old for ordination?

Shane Raynor offers a podcast commentary on the question of whether the Texas Conference of the United Methodist Church is making a mistake in discouraging people over the age of 45 from seeking ordination. He asks, provocatively, whether the church shouldn’t be discouraging everyone who seeks ordination.

The United Methodist Reporter has additional background and commentary on the issue here.

What are your thoughts? Should age be considered as a factor in the ordination process?
