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.
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.
The greatest family value is love:
Papa God set the standard;
Big Brother Jesus sest the example;
Holy Spirit empowers us
So that we can live accordingly.
Another family value is truth:
Spoken in sincerest love;
The standard for God’s dear sons and daughters;
In knowing Him we are set free,
Jesus the Way the truth and the life.
Papa God’s family values honor:
Parents, each other and all
Who know Him or need to find His presence;
Until they learn they are precious
And find their identity in Christ.
As we grow and learn family values,
May we practice them daily;
Call for God’s will on earth as in Heaven;
Live in Kingdom reality;
Reflect His glory until He comes.
