Talking about my generation

Were you around in the 1940s? Saw the post-war resurgence in church attendance during the 1950s? Watched the moon landing in the 1960s? Were you the first in your street to have a colour TV in the 1970s? And what about ‘young people today,’ with iPhones and Instagram, who are tech-savvy and constantly in debt? How do you understand religion and/or spirituality? In a light-hearted dialogue between a Baby Boomer from USA and a Gen X from Australia, we will explore the different generations in western societies today, focussing on the influences and trends that have impacted each generations’ perspective on religion and spiritual, relationships and communication. With boomers becoming older and millennials providing care, intergenerational understanding is essential to providing meaningful spiritual and pastoral care to older people. Let’s talk about our generations!
