The Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psalm 100:5)
 
For the past two Sundays, representatives from different generations have shared one of the scripture readings in worship. On Sunday, August 27th, we had readers from the GI and the Millennial generation. Last Sunday, September 3, we had readers from the Silent and the Homeland generation. In those few simple moments of worship, we were given the tangible reminder of a God who spans all the generations.
 
One of the things that makes a church like Canyon Creek unique is the fact that we are a multigenerational church. We have GIs, Silents, Boomers, GenX’ers, Millennials, and Homeland’ers. We have healthy doses of them all. Some might wonder how that is possible. What in the world could keep a community that diverse together? What could possibly make a younger Millennial want to worship alongside an older Silent? The answer, of course, is simple: faith. What keeps us together in all our differences and divergent life experiences is our faith in a God who is present to all the generations.
 
So, when you are in church with us this Sunday, may you look around at the faces of those young and old. May they remind you of a God who, in Jesus Christ, is bigger than us all.
