How To Bring Millennials Back To Church

Though I’d like to see some practical suggestions for incorporating the mystery and imagination into our worship and ministries, Rachel Johnson is definitely right that that is what millennials (and all of us?) crave.  To quote from her excellent article:

Don’t just give us jumbo screens and coffee bars. Don’t give us answers. Inspire us to imagine.

If Jim Wallis (as I posted earlier this month) is right that our job is to hope, then we need inspiration.  We need to tap into that part of ourselves that knows the world should be better than it is, not to live in a fantasy world that doesn’t exist, but that we might know the image of the Kingdom we are searching and working for.  

Also, since millennials are having kids left and right while facing the worst economy in decades, we could use some child care.
