Generational DNA

Breakfast meeting notes written on the back of this paper wrapper for the napkin/silverware bundle.
So much power, so little space.

Generational DNA.

Met yesterday with a business owner, fellow High School parent, and an ambitious, insightful, and hopeful middle-aged man.

He developed and teaches entrepreneurial studies to high school students locally and nation-wide.

His conclusion is that teens are frightened, insecure, and literally paralyzed by their fear.

Further, he believes their ability to take in-person risks (not social media risks) is catastrophically (my word) low.

He theorized this phenomenon is the result of the first parental generation to raise digital natives.

Because this is a first-in-our-world’s-history, it will take a generation or two to correct any massively detrimental generational habits.

Will “The Church” embrace digital disruption?

Church and digital transformation
As the two collection baskets passed, i wrote the idea that had come to me as i let go of the second basket.

Will “The Church” embrace digital disruption?

On the photo’s right is me thinking about having a collection app on our phone for when the donation baskets (one for the Church and one for Stewardship) come to us.

This would give the physical signal that we have taken action.

Currently, we automatically give electronically every three months (once a quarter). So when the baskets come to us, we don’t do anything except pass them ahead. It appears as if we don’t give.

PS. The acronym NYE in the photo above stands for New Year’s Eve.

Yesterday was New Year’s Day for the Catholic Church – the first Sunday of Advent.

Our Priest asked the congregation if we had celebrated NYE the night before.

His point, most of us were unaware.

But we are certainly aware of the secular NYE celebration opportunities.

What if we were equally, if not more, aware of the beginning of the Messiah story?
