where am I going?

ORACLE PPAC: Praying Parents of Adult Children ORACLE PPAC: Praying Parents of Adult Children is a Day of Reflection that enable grandparents,
parents and their adult children to enter into one another’s world. The Day of Reflection is based upon the Biblical text, Luke 15:11-32- "The Prodigal Son."
Goal: To bridge the gaps that exists between the world of the young adults, the world of their parents, and the world of the grandparents. Rational: Who
will hear the cry of the people? There appears to be three separate and foreign worlds at odds with one another: the world of young adult today, the world
of the parent and that of the grandparent. This separation has to be bridged. Parents have found it difficult, if not impossible, to enter into the world of
adult children and remain there for any given time. Grandparents (2 generations removed) raising youth today find it more difficult and challenging. The
language is different; the value system is different; the perspective on life is different. These differences contribute to broadening the gap among the three
worlds at odds with one another. Grandparents find themselves still raising their 18 to 40-year old children as well as their grandchildren
