This past week at Church At The GYM, Pastor Williams shared a message entitled, “From Generation to Generation: Making Sense of the Family Zoo.” It was a very informative and challenging message for all of us who were there.
After the message, a few questions came up. Here they are along with our response.
This stuff was great. Where can I get more information on this topic?
Great question! We would like to recommend the book One Church, Four Generations by Gary L. McIntosh. It explains in great detail the differences between the Builders, Boomers, Busters, and Bridgers. Understanding our generational bent will help us understand one another better and improve how we interact with each other.
I was listening carefully, but the conclusion went by so quickly that I didn’t have a chance to write down all seven points. What were the concluding thoughts?
No problem. It happens. Here were those last few points…
Conclusion: So how do we make sense of the family zoo? Follow the teachings of Paul in Romans 12:10-18.
1. Love one another. V.10
2. Honor one another by deferring to one another. V.10
3. Seek for unity, not division. V.16
