We can serve children by being present to and with them, being conversational, mentoring even when we do not have a formal mentoring relationship with them. Seekers is called to be an intentionally intergenerational community; we affirmatively create intergenerational opportunities, seeing them as valuable both for adults and children. Sometimes it is easy at our more socially oriented intergenerational events to separate into adult groups and children groups. Everyone is happy, but we lose the chance for greater connection.
