Why do so few young people attend church?
Why are Jewish and Muslim millennials so disenchanted with religion?
Why are young adult Catholics so angry? How can parents, grandparents, and religious leaders understand the younger generation’s widespread rejection of institutional religion?
On Sunday Feb 5th, MacKay welcomes Tom Sherwood to the pulpit as he speaks to these issues and more through his book “Listening to the Echo”. All are welcome.
Tom Sherwood was commissioned by the United Church of Canada to find a way to hear the voice of thoughtful, spiritual, ethical young adults who reject the religious institutions of their families. They are the “Echo Generation” – the children of Baby Boomers, the Echo from the Boom. But they do not echo their parents’ opinions or values.
Conversations that Matter
What if......MacKay fostered and fully embraced neighbourliness?
Bring your curiosity to a conversation about deepening our identity as a neighbourhood church.
Place: Memorial Hall, MacKay United Church
Date: Sun, Feb 12th, 2017
