OSL Women of the ELCA
From Generation
to Generation
Jodie Nielsen

The PEW Research Center has issued new generation guidelines. Here are their groupings:

  • The Silent Generation: Born 1928–1945
  • Baby Boomers: Born 1946–1964
  • Generation X: Born 1965–1980
  • Millennials: Born 1981–1996
  • Post-Millennials: Born 1997–Present
  • The generation groupings were determined by how the different age groups experience or experienced the world socially, economically, politically, and technologically. When we look at the changes each group has gone through and continues to go through, we gain a better insight and, perhaps, a newly found respect for these individuals.

    The May Gather magazine focuses on the different generations, and the May devotion highlights some of the different intergenerational relationships found in the Bible.

    May Devotional: “From Generation to Generation: Two-Way Blessings” by Christa Von Zychlin.

    Focus Verse: “One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.” Psalm 145:4

    Prayer: “Gracious and Almighty Creator, you have embedded us within a rich ecosystem of human relationships; Abuelas and Omas, daddies, aunties, kids in the neighborhood, and rainbows of babies.

    “Thank you for the rhythms of life. Guide us as we attend to the challenge and gift of intergenerational relationships. Strengthen us through your word of life today. Amen.” (Source: gathermagazine.org).
