Currently, 42.6 million people in the United States are sixty-five or older. America is not the nicest place to grow old; so much emphasis is placed on youth. However, seniors have a lot to contribute to the world.
In Grow Old along with Me, author Mark S. Milwee offers a touching and inspiring Christian commentary that speaks to the value of accepting and welcoming elderly Christians to the church. He shares his own experience in the pastoral ministry as he documents the contributions of the faithful elderly and encourages us to follow their example. Milwee shows seniors how they can be a blessing to others as they grow older and how to add value to those around them as they enter the twilight years. He helps them understand that respect must be earned instead of demanded.
Grow Old along with Me reminds all that senior adults are a valuable asset to any church and deserve to be valued, cherished, and treated with dignity and respect. It encourages seniors to make the decision to grow old gracefully and seeks to bring comfort to those who are facing death in the near future.
