Give them a gold watch and put them out in the cold? That's what some organizations do. But Christians can't do that.

Special Meeting April In Toronto Canada (1977 ?)
We have other reasons right here in Canada for enlarging our branch and bringing in even more to have them work with the staff now there. Ten percent of those who are members of the Bethel family are now at retirement age or older. Now what are we going to do with these? Give them a gold watch and put them out in the cold? That's what some organizations do. But Christians can't do that. They have served faithfully for 20, 30, 40 years at their assignments. And though we know many of you would be glad to have some of these older brothers and sisters in your home, we're not going to give them up. We'd like to keep them in our home.
Wouldn't that be what you would expect?
