Youth & Spirituality (2)
Young People Now magazine's hot issue asks "Do young people today care about faith and spirituality?".
3 out of 4 responding "YES!".

Most interesting response for me was by Terry Sanderson from the
National Secular Society who suggests:
"Young people care about spirituality, but not necessarily in the way churches would like. Young people do search for some kind of spiritual meaning in their lives, but a lot of churches might be disappointed to find it doesn't mean religion".

Kirsty Jordan, a young person (18) suggests: "I don't really know what the Church can offer me as a young person, but I think it does offer a lot if you're looking for it" (presumably because you're old??).

An interesting context to be doing ministry!
