40acts: Act 34 Adopt

Act 34: Adopt by Euan Johnstone

Friendships across generations are vanishing – in the UK, libraries, pubs, youth centres and clubs are closing at a shocking rate, with 600 youth clubs shutting down over the last six years. Churches are some of the last places where generations meet. But do we make the most of that chance?

Today’s verse

“The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood…”
(John 1:14 MSG)

Today’s Options


Schedule a meet-up with someone from a different generation.


Schedule a monthly hang-out, and serve while you do – what can you do to help them?


Find someone in your church (or anywhere) who you know, and decide to ‘adopt’ them. Take them under your wing, and make them a part of your life.

What did I do?

It’s Holy Week and it’s school holidays. We have friends visiting from India at the moment. We also have friend’s daughter coming to stay from India shortly too. It will be a fun filled full house! Whilst the young lady is in Singapore, I will be her guardian. She will be my complete responsibility. Whilst not exactly matching the options available I think it meets the bill.
