Building Blocks of a Parenting Legacy (From Our Pastors)

We are moving from a first-generation church to a second-generation church. One thing that means is that more and more of us are completing our years of direct parenting and are navigating the very different experience of being parental figures in multigenerational families. It’s a big change! The verse in Psalm 127, “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth” is a helpful picture of the experience–we raise our children and send them out into the world. Hopefully, we have shot them in a good direction, but we cannot always know where they will land. How do we handle the new relationships we need to build with adult children and play a redemptive role in their lives and the generation they bring into the world
