Great questions lead to great exchanges.
15 Questions millenials ask boomers
Karen and I are coaching 64 20-somethings (World Racers – you can see their blogs here). I told them we'd answer any question they might want to ask us. So they wrote a bunch out on scraps of paper. I list 15 of them below.
If you are a boomer parent of millenial kids, here are some questions they may want to ask you. I suggest you take them out to dinner and have a great conversation.
2. How did you respond to your failures?
3. What are some things you would tell your 22 year-old self?
4. What are some stories about mentors who shaped your life?
5. What is the craziest thing you've ever done?
6. Talk about a tough period of your life and what you learned.
7. How do you reconcile the goodness of God with all the suffering in the world?
8. What is your scariest story about ministry? How did God walk you through it?
9. What does your prayer life look like?
10. What hopes do you have for us?
11. What are a few key lessons you've learned about marriage?
12. What is your favorite childhood memory?
13. What makes you come alive?
14. How do we connect with people your age who can help us?
15. What advice do you have about raising kids?
This is good Seth. I tried to quickly answer each one and learned a few things along the way. Blessings….
Great questions….will you post your and Karens answers?
Love those questions. They are insightful and full of wisdom.
Now the tough part is answering them openly with others! A true sense of
Building community, after this past week it could be done. I’m willing to share them with our small group here in okie land. Appreciate the post.
Good idea Clint – maybe I’ll do that.
I am going to visit my 28 year old son in a couple of weeks, and plan to go on a great hike in the beautiful PW NW and talk about these very questions.
