Multigenerational Life

We are building and playing here at RRUUC in a robust network of dynamic, caring, and loving multigenerational relationships. And we are thriving. As a Unitarian Universalist Association staff member offers “We need the wonder, awe and fresh eyes children can bring. We also need the questioning, testing, sometimes “why can’t we?” spirit youth can bring. We need the idealism, creativity and energy young adults can bring. We need the experience, skills and leadership middle-aged adults can bring. We need the wisdom, memory and depth elders can bring. We need it all, not in isolated silos and affinity groups, but mixed up together—week in and week out, holding us, worshiping with us, teaching us, challenging us, inspiring us.”  We can do both — learn, serve and play in age groups (Children, Youth, Adult) and also strive to build on that most unique gift of congregational life — the blessing of all the generations mixing it up.
