This conversation is missing your voice. Please join Vimeo or log in.This is a great statement. It really speaks to an attitude churches and church leaders can take in order to better engage young adults.
Often times churches and church leaders have a great desire to invite and welcome new people into the community. They hope others will join the church, Bible study, or Wednesday night kids/youth programs. This is all done in a way that makes it clear they believe they are a welcoming and warm congregation. They truly hope others will join their church and "log in" to the many programs and activities available. I believe the rub comes in the first part of the Vimeo statement.
I found Vimeo's statement meaningful and powerful. There is a Christian conversation taking place all around us and if you are not engaged we are missing your voice, just as much as you are missing ours. My prayer is that we all find ways to truly engage in conversation in order to hear and to be heard, to actually contribute and to receive.
