Crossing the Generational Divide
Each generation has preconceived ideas and attitudes toward other generations. “Those older people just don’t understand.” “Young people today have no respect.” “Older adults are stuck in their ways.” “Young adults are lazy.” And you can add all of you own statements and the ones you’ve heard people say.
The problem is, these attitudes prevent us from really connecting with one another and more importantly, they prevent us from looking beyond the surface and seeing the real person. The hardships. The struggles. The joys.
This video shared by the Texas Baptists clearly hits on some of the challenges that keep the generations from connecting. It would be a great clip to use to start a conversation in your church. Take a look and then share any feedback you have in the comments.
