In It Together

_71435662_m3750096-family-splDear Millennials:
You desire truth and authenticity, the freedom to be and do you; you want enough safety to become vulnerable; you want significance. I want that, too.

Like you, I learned to be cautious and mistrustful.  I am anti-establishment and ever seeking new ways.
Dear Boomers:
Do you remember wanting these things? I do.
What happened? Why did you give up on these and settle into the status quo?

I know so many of you – you still value authenticity, social justice, idealism and freedom.  You have not lost the fire in your hearts that cause you to work for a better world.

 

Dear generations in between:
You want identity, prosperity and freedom.
Do these not add up to the same things that milennials and boomers seek?

We are in this world together, searching and working for the same things.
Let’s join hearts and hands and include each other:
Boomers need you, Xers, Mes and Milennials;
I hope you recognize that you need us as well.
There is such a lie that has been promoted – Anyone over 40 is done.
No! We’re still here; we’re alive and desirous of the same things.
Instead of opposing or excluding each other, let’s come together in the unity of our ideals and searches;
Then we’ll see what God makes from all of this.

PAPA GOD

Papa God
Takes care of me.
He knows my desires;
Understands every need.
He never gets caught
By surprises and lies;
He knows every thought;
Papa God is all wise.

 

Papa God
Loves perfectly.
With kindness and patience;
True sincerity.
His power and might
Can defeat any foe;
To walk in his light
Brings blessing to each soul.

 

Papa God,
Eternal One
Redeemed his beloved world
Through Jesus, his dear Son.
Papa made the way
To live abundantly;
Put your trust in Him;
Be restored and set free!
