Christian Voice are on the front line - they need support

The Old Folk

 

I’m not sure where this page is going yet, but it will also

link you to good people in and out of the ‘Church’ who

are genuinely trying to help people who are mature citizens.

 

The Christian Church is obsessed with youth and getting

them into their churches to continue their particular Christian

tradition, however, unless the most vulnerable are prioritised,

the Church will implode. Indeed, it is already imploding.

 

The substance of Church should be love. If the elderly are

lonely, or frightened, or under nourished, or existing in cold

rooms,  or suffering in any way that can be avoided, why

would God trust such a Church with the precious soul of a

young person? The same applies to the disabled.

How many churches make it a priority to ensure that

the elderly can get to Sunday worship, by organising lifts,

or even taking the ‘church’ to them ,occasionally?

 

The truth is that if a Church loved and looked after its members and the members loved and looked after each other, such a church would attract others.

 

It occurs to me that someone should start up a ‘mature citizens’ party that focuses almost entirely upon the needs of the old and elderly. After all the ‘Green’ party certainly made the other party’s change their agendas.

The number of ‘old’ voters must be so great as to be able to sway the balance of power. Given the changes they have experienced and the contributions they have made it is a mystery to me that such wisdom and investment is held in such poor regard by so many people. I’ve heard the lip service and I’ve seen the crocodile tears, but the fact remains that as a society we are abusing our elderly.

 

Indeed, the elderly are often their own worst enemy by ‘not wanting to cause any trouble’. Then again, many elderly who are ‘doing all right thank you’ sometimes have little sympathy for some of their less fortunate peers because of their previous life styles or behaviour.

 

We all need to realise that what goes around, comes around and we all need to root out elderly abuse.

It can be kids persecuting the elderly at night, or a nurse or care worker ignoring an elderly persons request.

It can be their children putting careers and their own kids first, or politicians aiming their policies at their voter base.

 

Help an old person a day.
