If youth are the church of today, does that mean senior adults are the church of yesterday? That is certainly not the case. We, all of us, are part of the body of Christ. Each of us has a part to play and each of us needs the others.

It is one thing to underestimate ourselves. It is another thing altogether to underestimate ourselves for someone else. Yet, that is precisely what is happening with many of our senior adults. Over and over again senior adults indicated that they did not pursue relationships with youth because of what they believed the youth thought of them. None of their assumptions of how the youth perceived them were flattering, but none of them actually came from the mouths of teenagers either.
Our churches are full of people, of all ages, who are desperately searching for meaningful ways to connect and contribute to the local church. Developing relationships between senior adults and youth serves this purpose to make the church healthier.
