More spiritual than religious

Yet another study on the beliefs of today’s generations.  Believing More than Belonging is the title of the article, based on a study by the Pew Forum “exploring the behaviors, values and opinions of the teens and 20-somethings that make up the Millennial Generation.”  Here are a couple of charts from the full study

In a related article, here is a quote on what we need to do to get the younger generations into our churches.

“To attract these young adults, religious leaders have to rethink the taken-for-granted package of ministries they offer, de-center support for family formation as their primary area of ministry for those under 35, adopt less hierarchical styles of organization, and listen more. This is more difficult than railing against ‘those young people’ and their supposed lack of a moral center, but it is more likely to achieve the desired result.”
