Our relationships are enriched and encouraged when we get to know people outside our own generational and relational box. Today’s show brings encouragement in abundance from a Millennial and her Generation Z sister.
Today I want to finish the interview we started in last week’s episode 17, ” Two Sisters – Part 1.” If you listened to that show you may recall that I spoke with two sisters in their ’20’s, Hannah and Abby Barbeau. It was to learn what we could from them about sibling relationships, and also their thoughts about other relationship matters.

I recently had breakfast with a pastor friend who retired last year. A very young 70-old guy who is now off doing other meaningful things with his life. Among other things, Mike and I talked about the transition he led his congregation through to prepare for his passing the baton on to the next generation of leadership at his church. He talked about the importance of the older generation disciplining and mentoring the younger crowd. Mike said, “I encouraged people my age to ‘adopt a millennial.’” I like that phrase, “adopt a millennial.” He encouraged the baby boomer generation to get to know those coming up behind them, and to make a positive impact in their lives. What a great relationship concept.

Especially in the area of relationships, both with each other as siblings, and with their peers. So hear we go. I think you’ll find this interesting.
