WE ARE LOSING A GENERATION

"We are losing a generation."
It’s a refrain I hear again and again.  It saddens me. 
"We are losing a generation", they say.  And they wage their culture wars, fighting for the attention of an age group that they fear are disconnected and disillusioned. 
All the while ignoring another generation; a generation living with intense loneliness and emptiness.
While we increasingly accomodate ourselves to the demands of an emerging generation, agonising over how to reach them and connect with their worldview, we readily ignore the elders; those who have gone before us, and yet have never found the reason for their race. 
Over the years I have been in countless gatherings where those under 25 or 30 have been called forward.  We have prayed our best prayers, trusting Father to do something amazing in their generation.  Rarely have I been in a gathering where those over 55 are called forward. 
We are losing a generation not because we do not know how to connect, but simply because we do not care to connect.  They have become the disposable generation. Those whom we used to set us up in life, yet God’s heart aches for that generation.

 

 

 

Hope When Your Plans Get Interrupted by Holley Gerth :

Hope in a God whose ways are higher than ours.

Hope in a future he promises he’s preparing for us.

Hope that even today’s rain can somehow how become tomorrow’s flowers.

Lost in Translation

Practicing “When you say ___, I hear ___” slows the process down and often transforms a couple’s communication cycle. Many marital disagreements can be saved before they get hijacked by misinterpretations. –
