Those of you who follow this blog will know that I write about my research into young adult faith, aiming to help church leaders and youth workers understand younger generations better.
However, what I’d like to do during the Covid 19 pandemic is something a bit different. I’d love to provide a place for young adults to voice what is going on with them. Yes, it will be interesting for me to hear as a researcher but actually I’m posting this more with my pastoral head on; how are young Christians doing in all the uncertainty of this season?
With that in mind I’m going to post a short vlog asking a couple of questions every two weeks or so, and ask young adults aged 17/18 – 30ish (though I’m not that precious about age boundaries) to tell me how they are finding things and what is going on with their life and faith.
All comments will be mediated so that the feed is respectful and constructive. One of the reasons for using this site is to make it a bit more discreet than social media and thus hopefully filter out some of the less helpful input.
So, it’s an experiment… have a watch of the first vlog and if you are a young adult and would like to comment please do and forward the link to your friends. Alternatively, or I you are a bit older and think it would be helpful for any young Christians you know then please do forward it to them, whether in the UK or beyond. I’d love to both create a supportive community and allow those of us who are a bit older to see how those we care about are really finding life and faith right now.
Grace and Peace to you – wherever you are and however you are doing.
