As a professor at Johnson University, I would have to work hard to avoid intergenerational relationships. Many in my generation will have to be more creative to make intergenerational connections. But those who do will experience a surprising blessing.

For more than 20 years, humble servants have come to help us clean dormitories, perform minor repairs, and help beautify the campus in preparation for the Women’s Retreat, Senior Saints in the Smokies, CIY Move & Mix, and other summer activities taking place at Johnson University Tennessee. Their participation fosters a strong sense of connection between the churches and the University and we are blessed by their personal effort and interest.

Recent events in Baltimore have highlighted many problems in urban centers today.  These problems are complex with no easy solution.  The important role played by faith-based organizations and personnel was very well highlighted in Baltimore.
