For many of us in the church we all know the continuing plaguing(no kidding) question that is upon us…Where are the young people? I began to think about that and I don’t think it is the right question. The real question is…where has the church gone that it no longer has anything to offer the young people?
I recently took part in a meditation retreat and I noticed something…every aged person was present. Obviously it is not a matter of a lack of interest that young people do not engage the spiritual. Instead, it must be a lack of the current institutions providing anything that truly allows people to link to the spiritual. It is time to change that by implementing and recalling our ritual past to create places for all to worship, pray, meditate and to engage the divine and themselves.
