Intergenerational Differences in Women’s Ministry

Lisa Turner | Independent Presbyterian Church, Memphis, TN

For years after church on Sundays, I went to lunch with my mother, who is in her 80s, and my daughter, who is in her 30s. I could not understand how these two who live in the same zip code, shop at the same grocery, attend the same church & share the same name saw things so differently. One would say, “I just don’t understand why….” or the other would ask, “Why would they do that”? I finally realized the answer…generations are like cultures—they see things differently. This seminar would take a look at the different generations in a church, what shapes them & the importance of accepting and respecting the other.
