Don't trust anyone over 30!!!
Dr. Os Guiness said that every now and then a generation becomes conceited and heads off in an unwise direction. The 60s kids were such, have grown up and messed up. Our current generation of young people are generationally conceited. Os sat under Francis Shaeffer when he was in his 20's, and held the rapt attention of a multigenerationl church in Roseville Ca at age 69. He said it was refreshing to be in any church where people are taught to think. Agreement here.
We tend to shrink our definition of generation so it represents people in a small age range, when biblical speaking a generation is all those living together at a given time and included cradle roll to the very old. I miss being part of a multigenerational church.
When I left my denomination, I choose a church with this motto, "one generation, passing the light of truth, to another". I loved the respect that was shown to the elderly in that church.
