Why is it that we never want to listen?
In Chinese culture, the older Generation loves to use this Chinese saying: I’ve had more salt than you’ve had rice’ when talking to the younger generation; expressing their seniority and experience with the connotation that the younger generation should listen to them. In western culture we also have such sayings, expressing similar sentiments. Yet in a time when the relationship between the generations is increasingly strained and the world has no answer such problems, Pastor Liu looks to the unchanging truth of God’s word; turning traditional thinking upside down and revealing vital keys to achieve unity between the generations.
The two live side by side in parallel universes; is communication even possible?
“My child, we think differently, but that’s ok! When the hearts of the parents turn towards their children and the hearts of the children turn towards their parents, revival will come in our generation.〞
