There was something about last night’s Grammy Awards show that was both quite cool and quite telling. As one who grew up on the younger side of the 60’s “generation gap” and one who is now on the older side of today’s “cultural-generational gap,” I loved the cross-generational flavor of the show. It was a brilliant move that’s reflective of where our culture is headed. . . I hope. In fact, the church has much to learn from the inter-generational nature of The Grammy performances (several instances of old and young, yesterday and today, performing together). For too long, many in the church have succumbed to marketing’s generational segmentation by keeping the generations apart, especially when it comes time for corporate worship. Big mistake. . . a mistake that tears apart rather than builds up the Body of Christ.
