Our Latest Posts
Too often, I fear, for those of us in ministry and even for those of us to attend services throughout the week, the aftermath of Easter is… weariness. But the accounts in Scripture of the actual events post Easter Sunday show there was intense excitement as more and more people encountered the living Christ and shared their story with others. Easter teaches us that our joy is made complete, our faith is made whole, when we both experience the risen Christ in our own lives and in the community of believers. This is generational discipleship. This is Easter.
As we create communities that encourage relationships to be built across generations, it is important for us to find ways for each generation to both give and receive. And isn’t that what church is all about? The body of Christ, receiving from Christ and one another and, in turn, giving of itself to the one another and the world; just as Jesus has done and just as we will celebrate this upcoming Holy Week. Intergenerational ministry is, at its heart, the church, built and fitted together, as the body of Christ.
A couple of years ago, I shared the following story with our families in church but there is no reason you can’t do the same in your home. Invite your kids into the greatest story of all times and let them be drawn into the wonder and mystery that is our faith. Note for those who do a Children’s Sermon in your service – This is an excellent interaction sermon that even the adults will enjoy.
