And a snapshot of the Good Old Days, when Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, and (perhaps) currency stability could be relied on.
Things are going to get harder than 2008. Or even 2021.
The Christian Church should start looking for ways to give assistance to the poor and elderly, mobile and not. First priority to church members, yes, but God’s Grace is not limited to those within the church.

It will only get stronger and strong, until the murders – cheerfully ignored by most Christians – stop.
