There is little doubt that western culture as our students are experiencing is frightening. But every time I give this talk, I have an incredible sense of hope. They hang on every word and the conversation continues long after I step off the stage.
As older generations, it is easy to see our youth as less than what we were. Focussing on the negative comes almost natural. But, it is these students who are entering the workforce, impacting the economy, the future pastors our churches, and charting the course for Christianity’s future—taking what we hand off to them and moving it forward. It is our job to be sure we are handing off a faith that reflects Christ, a mission that is focused on the gospel, and wisdom that can only come from God.
