Want to figure out why the Boomers and GenXers in your congregation just can’t seem to get along? Congregational Connections: Uniting Six Generations in the Church is a breakthrough guidebook for our new society of six generational segments. The authors offer congregational leaders insights into the conflicts that are arising and give case studies that demonstrate why these conflicts occur. In simple prose they explain why Older and Younger members inhabit two different realities--defined by e-technologies and worldview. They also suggest how Christian congregations may begin to resolve these revolutionary pressures. What readers have to say:“A real “eye-opener” for clergy and lay leaders alike! I shared an earlier draft with my entire Vestry, so that we could learn to welcome new leadership across generations.” –The Rev. Tom Cook, Rector, Trinity Episcopal Church, Swarthmore“Understanding generational theory gave me insight into some ‘stuck’ situations in the parish and helped me facilitate movement.” – Rev. Claire Nevin-Field, Associate Rector, St. Peter’s Church, Philadelphia“This is a fascinating discussion of the intricacies of ministering to a multi-generational congregation.” – The Rev. Canon Mariclair Partee“Neither is new wine put into old wineskins” (MT 9:17) This book refreshingly reminds us: the new wine is among us–now!” – The Rev. Linda Kapurch“The Gospel is not the property of any one culture or era. Understanding the differences between generations is an invaluable tool in sharing the love of God with today’s world.”—Fr. Jonathan A. Mitchican, Rector, Church of the Holy Comforter, Drexel Hill “I find attentiveness to generational theory contributes significantly to effective leadership.” -- The Rev. John M. AtkinsCreditsCover Photo: Lee Hogan Photo Design: Derry RiddleInterior Graphics: Derek Ayers
