“One generation shall laud your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts” (Psalm 145:4).

For Gather’s May 2019 intergenerational devotional, the Rev. Christa von Zychlin brings us “Two way blessings,” a study of intergenerational relationships in Scripture. Looking at the stories of Miriam, Anna and Simeon, as well as the miracle feeding of the 5,000, we’ll see how God uniquely shares wisdom among each of us—and how our lives are enriched in community with all ages!

A frequent Gather contributor, von Zychlin has served Lutheran churches around the world through ELCA Global Mission. She currently pastors Trinity Lutheran Church of Las Cruces, New Mexico.
