Global Report On Ageism
"The Global Report On Ageism outlines a framework for action to reduce ageism including specific recommendations for different actors (e.g. government, UN agencies, civil society organizations, private sector). It brings together the best available evidence on the nature and magnitude of ageism, its determinants and its impact. It outlines what strategies work to prevent and counter ageism, identifies gaps and proposes future lines of research to improve our understanding of ageism."

Message of Hope with Pastor Ray
A Matter of Perspective

The other day I heard about a six-year-old and an eighty-year-old who both lost a tooth. One was told to wait a few weeks and they would have a brand-new shiny tooth, It’ll just take time. The other was also told to wait a few weeks and they would have a brand-new shiny tooth. It’ll just take $2,000.

At one end of the human life, we see an event as a sign for hope. At the other end of life, we see the same event as a sign of decline. It is all a matter of perspective.

A wise teacher said,
“There is a time for everything,
    and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

We know that each stage of life has joys and challenges. The teacher encourages us to embrace each experience and savour it as a sign of the season in which we live.
The same teacher said, “God has set eternity in the human heart.”

So, on the spectrum of eternity there is not much difference between six years and eighty years. Both get a new tooth! One is just a little closer to the finish-line. How we view the finish-line, however, makes a big difference. If we see it as terminal, the end, no more, or if we see it as a portal to a new and exciting adventure changes everything.

Jesus said to his friends as they stood by a graveside, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die. Do you believe this?” John 11:25, 26.
