Serving Seniors

Podcast_Art3Welcome to the weekly podcast of “MY Brother’s Keeper,” inciting a conspiracy of kindness and good deeds. This podcast is your weekly opportunity to get informed and to join the conspiracy. We try to make certain that each podcast features information, lessons, insights and interviews concerning such issues as homelessness, hunger, and people in crisis. Our goal goes beyond talking about issues.  We want to combine practical solutions with personal encouragement and offer a challenge to our listeners to get personally involved. While our perspective is that of historic Evangelical Christian faith, and while much of our audience is Christian, the issues we discuss and the solutions we offer go far beyond the walls of any Church or religious organization. We hope you will listen, become part of the conversation, and join our growing conspiracy of kindness and good deeds.

“Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you can.”  – John Wesley

This Week’s Program Notes For “Serving Seniors”

On this week’s program I Interview Mollie Dalpae, Executive Director of Mid-City Concerns and Meals On Wheels Of Spokane concerning issues facing our senior citizens.

Program Opening: Let’s quit pretending and be honest for just a moment, shall we? You and I live in a society which prefers to mask its problems with slick magazines and expertly produced videos designed to convince us that everything is OK. In the words of philosopher and Apologist Ravi Zacharias, we live in a generation which listens with its eyes and thinks with its feelings.  And our view of our senior citizens probably more defined by AARP than by the teachings of Jesus in Matthew 25. I’ve often said to friends and family that aging is not nearly as glamorous as AARP makes it out to be. But as a dues-paying, card-carrying member of AARP, I often wonder who and where their constituency is, or whether they have a clue that all is not well among a wide swath of our Senior population, whose pictures and stories never make it onto the cover of their magazine.
