The Merging of the Generations

August 23, 2013

Amazing Grace – a Christian standard which is recognized in any church regardless of the denominational affiliation. Fairly recently singer and songwriter Chris Tomlin added a few verses. It has been retitled “Amazing Grace (My Chains are Gone)”. I know many who are upset about this. They feel the “young” generations are trying to force change into the church and make it theirs. I propose a different view of this new version.

While the original has been around for decades, these new verses are done from a place of respect. I see these new verses are an addition of this young, new generation stating “We still believe this grace is as amazing as the day this song is written and it has freed us from the chains of oppression.” It was a salute to those before, by those who are here now, to be handed to those yet to come. This new version is an example of the movement of the saints from one generation to the next.

Please take the time to listen to the video below with these ideas in mind. Sit with your family and listen. Talk about the importance of your faith. Start passing it on for the next generation to walk in their shoes and carry the standard of the church to come!
