The Joy and Pain of an Intergenerational Church

December 21, 2009

This year we’ve said “see you later” to Don Thomas, Marge Sheneberger, Pastor Paul, John Lockett, Norma Jean Kittinger, and now Francis Mumm. Each of these brothers and sisters poured so much love and encouragement into my life.   And I know they did the same for so many of you reading this post.

My heart is filled with wonder as I think of them in the presence of the King. Yet it is not without reason Scripture calls death an enemy.  The separation is difficult and my heart experiences sadness when I think about life without their profound support, continuous prayer, and sweet friendship. 

This link expresses so much that is in my heart, and it shows our church is not alone experiencing the joy and pain of an intergenerational church.
