From Generation to Generation
The "generation gap" is real.
It can be emotional, confusing, isolating. Do you feel it? Can different generations truly understand each other, appreciate each other, learn from each other?
Christianity, counter-cultural as it is, says that the generations can do these things. But it doesn’t stop there. The Bible says that Christians of all ages must bridge the generation gap with humility, respect, and love.
The spring Week of Prayer aims to bridge that gap by calling all generations to pray for one another and rejoice together in the works of the one eternal God. Our praise and prayers will be founded on two realities that are common to everyone: we all need forgiveness and we all have hope for salvation through Jesus Christ.
Psalm 145:4-9 says,
"One generation shall commend your works to another,
and shall declare your mighty acts.
On the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.
They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds,
and I will declare your greatness.
They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness
and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.
The Lord is gracious and merciful,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
The Lord is good to all,
and his mercy is over all that he has made."
Let’s pray that Covenant Life Church is filled with cross-generational relationships marked by gratefulness to God for his mighty acts in everyone’s lives, regardless of age.
