I interviewed Alan Roxburgh some time ago. At one point he made reference to our ages, and said something like “someone like you in your 40s.” At the time, I was 39.
I had coffee with a new friend in his twenties a few months back. At the end, he prayed, “Lord, we thank you that we could be together today, young and old.” There were only two of us there, and I’m pretty sure I was the one that he thought was old.
Last week, I was talking to my uncle. He said that the younger generation is moving away from physical books toward digital ones. I said, “I still love having a book in my hand.” As gently as he knew how, he said, “I was talking about the younger generation.”
Are people trying to tell me something?
