It is an honor to share what MKP USA Elders are doing across the country to make a difference in the world! Our Elder community is the largest single group within MKP, numbering an estimated twenty thousand nationwide. Theodore Roszak, in The Making of an Elder Culture writes “Given the size of the demographic, the wisdom of elders may have more power to change the world than the passion of youth.”
Our overarching MKP USA Mission statement reads: To create a world where men act on their individual and collective responsibility for the future of humanity by initiating and supporting men on a path of emotional maturity, spiritual awareness, and deepening community.
You and I are now the men to act on our individual and collective responsibility for the future of humanity, and, we stand on the shoulders of thousands of amazing Elders of the past to actualize that Mission today.
It is now our opportunity to do whatever we can to make the world a better place for those who will be standing on our shoulders in the future.
Building on MKP’s Mission, the following Elder Guiding Statements were forged:
Vision: To make a positive difference today for the wellbeing of future generations
Mission: To engage Elders in meaningful areas of service; to champion Elder values and behavior; to support one another with emotional maturity, spiritual awareness, and deepening community.
To support these Guiding Statements, fifteen Project Teams were created. These Teams provide the opportunity to connect with other Elders throughout the country to address each topic. You are encouraged to join the Team(s) that are most relevant to you. Click Here to sign up!
Please know that I/we are always open to your thoughts and suggestions for future newsletters!
Many blessings for showing up and for your contributions,
Ron Roesler, Chairman
2019 & 2020 MKP USA Council of Elders
