“Where are the young people?” This same question has been asked for generations and generations. The youth are around. Sure they may not all be in active ministry or bringing groups of friends to Sunday worship but they are there, in our pews with their families or sitting by themselves, in our schools, in our cafes making us coffee and stacking shelves at our supermarkets. They may not always be in the brick building that many of us consider our “Parish” but they are within our communities. I believe the question should be more along the lines of how are we as communities of faith encountering, engaging with, and encouraging active participation with our young people?
