Generation G

We are not affiliated with just one subset of the population; we are one with all of God’s creation—each individual distinctly original.

We often hear about fundamental differences between the generations. The time period when you were born is said to affect your learning ability, social practices, work standards, politics, family life, and religious observance. Many organizations use classifications such as Baby Boomer, Gen X, Millennial, and Gen Z to formulate business and strategic plans. And some may find it useful to know what frame of reference people have when discussing pop culture, world events, etc. 

But are generational characteristics the most helpful way to think about others? And is this how we should be classifying or defining ourselves?

I’m grateful that Christian Science assures us that we actually have a much higher identity as eternal children of God. Rather than having fixed material attributes based on human circumstance, our true identity is spiritual and based on the attributes of our creator. Our true identity is the reflection of God and is based entirely on how God sees us.
