Millenials dont exist

Millenials dont exist

Millenials don’t exist – People do

A Generation doesn’t exist – People do

The poor doesn’t exist – People do

Post-moderns dont exist – People do

Generation Y doesnt exist – People do

Christendom cant be reacted to – People can

Secularism is only grasped at – People are real

The lost arent anywhere – we’ve lost them.

No one is reached- people are met and encountered

Let’s collapse the language. All attempts to know about people before knowing people. People are given to us in God’s world, so are their gifts. Lets make spaces to meet people an open up places where God is found with and in them. Call it engagement, call it love.
