This weekend, as I relaxed in the mountains of Tennessee, I made several critical connections I wasn’t expecting to make. When you least expect it, relationships form, similar interests emerge and bang! – You’ve got yourself a critical connection. Now while most of the people on my trip to the mountains where of an older generation, I wondered if millennials could grasp the concept of hard core in your face relational contact while sequestered for an entire weekend. Funny thing is that all of us “older generation” folks were just vying to get on our smart phones, internet, tweet, Facebook, etc. – it was really funny and exciting to watch. Needless to say, I don’t believe that my friends knew I was scoping them out…because it wasn’t my intention. Though there is clearly gaps between the generations when it comes to building relationships and making critical connections and using technology to stay in touch, it’s a beautiful thing to appreciate that we’re not that different.
