“Generation We”

“…it shall be a witness between us and you and between our generations after us, that we are to perform the service of the LORD before Him with our burnt offerings, and with our sacrifices and with our peace offerings, so that your sons will not say to our sons in time to come, “You have no portion in the LORD.”” (Joshua 22:27)

People born between 196x – 198x are called “Generation X”. People born between 198x – 200x are called “Millennial Generation”. Now, there’s a new term describing people born from 200x onwards: “Generation We”. It’s a generation not only savvy about technology and internet, but savvy about Web 2.0 and social networking so much that they have a global-oriented and community-oriented mindset at a very young age. Generation We kids use instant messaging instead of sending emails, view YouTube clips instead of watching TV or DVDs. But most interesting is that their focus is not on technology, but on the possibility that they can engage in a wider community and also involve themselves in that community. Because of all the interactive media around them, they’re encouraged to express their personal opinions on many things, and they’re encouraged to be creative.

How do we reach this new generation for Christ?
