Reaching the Next Generation

“Reaching the next generation- whether they are outside your church or sitting there bored in your church- is easier and harder than you think. It’s easier because you don’t have to get a degree in postmodern literary theory or go to a bunch of stupid movies. You don’t have to say “sweet” or “bling” or know what LOL or IMHO means. You don’t have to listen to… well, whatever people listen to these days. You don’t have to be on Twitter, watch The Office, or imbibe fancy coffees. You just have to be like Jesus. That’s it. So the easy part is you don’t have to be with it. The hard part is you have to be with HIM. If you walk with God and walk with people, you’ll reach the next generation.”
