As Christians, we are often guilty of not valuing and plumbing the depths of the older saints around us. We don't call on their wisdom or lean on their prayer enough and perhaps if we did that more, our attitudes towards ageing would begin to shift.
On 11 May, the Queen will give a speech to mark the state opening of Parliament and set out the UK Government's agenda as they look to 'build back better' after Covid-19. Stephen Hammersley from Pilgrims' Friend Society says putting a spotlight on the way we care for older people is vital.
Charities and care homes like Pilgrims' Friend Society needs prayer as our work is under great stress, but we also praise God for the testimonies of our residents' trust in Jesus and their concern for others.
