A relay race is an image of how one generation can pass on valuable life principles to another. In our society we have delegated compassion and care to the professionals, when all that may be needed is a shoulder to lean on, a cup of tea and time, a listening ear and heart, someone who is available and willing to be a sounding board.
Passing the Baton: Linking the Generations explores the blessing when generations work together. The author shows what is needed to be a good mentor but also what is expected of the mentee. She gives some biblical examples that we can learn from. Each chapter has some questions to reflect on with some additional points to consider.
