Religion, Morality, and Youth

dCheck out this fascinating episode of NPR’s “On Point with Tom Ashbrook” that aired this morning.  It’s called “Religion, Morality and Youth,” and asks what compass or hope guides people from 18-29 in 2009.  His guests are Harvard Humanist Chaplain Greg Epstein and sociologist Christian Smith.  I hope you’ll listen to the entire hour, because at about the 20 minute mark, you might hear a call from a voice you recognize.

On a related note, we’re consulting with Landon Saunders and Mike Cope on a new project to get 18-29-year-olds in small groups asking the question, “What Really Matters?”  Check out their vision at heartbeatlife.org.
