    FROM THE PASTOFROM THE PASTOFROM THE PASTOFROM THE PASTORRRR

    Across Generations

    One generation shall laud your works to another, and

    shall declare your mighty acts.

    – Psalm 145:4

    At Gethsemane, we value everyone and that includes

    people of all ages. We know that older people have a

    great deal to offer like wisdom, life experiences, and

    patience, and our youngest people have energy,

    wonder, and enthusiasm to share. Everyone has

    something to learn from everyone else. And yet we

    don’t often have quality time to share those things

    with each other.

    The model of Christian learning and Sunday School

    that most of us have grown up with has people

    segregated by age. This might be useful in some ways,

    but in others it can be lacking. Where can our younger

    people hear stories that our older people share?

    Where can young parents learn from the wisdom of

    middle aged parents? When can our older generations

    hear about the lives of our teenagers?

    Church is one of the last places where people of all

    generations are together in one place. We should take

    advantage of that gift that God has given us. Faith is

    something that should be shared across generations.

    We have an opportunity (and an obligation) to share

    our faith with younger people.

    When our parents and teachers got together in the

    summer to review our education program, one

    priority that we agreed on was “building a close

    community with young people of many ages and with

    adults across generations”. But when would we do it?

    Could we handle another program. The reality is, we

    need to do that work (and fun) when most of our

    people are here together. And that time is Sunday

    morning.

    On November 15, we will have our first opportunity to

    share our faith together in an education opportunity

    called GIFT (Generations In Faith Together). This is a

    time where people of all generations can come

    together to share with one another, learn about

    scripture, and bless one another with our wisdom and

    enthusiasm.

    We will gather together in the Great Hall during the

    regular 10:45 education hour after worship. We’ll get

    into groups that intentionally include all generations

    (hosted by our families with children) we’ll share, talk,

    pray, connect our story with God’s story, and create

    something together.

    Even if you don’t usually participate in our Sunday

    education opportunities, please come join in on

    November 15th, give it a try and get to know other

    people, young and old!
