How millennial are you?

March 24, 2010 5 comments

Here is a quiz for you to take to see how much of a millennial you are.

Then, an article that says millennials like to work less but want to get paid more. Well, who wouldn’t?

Care to share your millennial score and your age?

I scored a 70 and I am 54.  Ok, I fudged a little on an answer or two

Another article here on what a church is doing to reach out to the millenials. Very significant words:

Featuring a historic liturgy, the services offer a “definite structure” with confession and a weekly Eucharist.

“I think those are the kinds of things that connect with Millennials,” DeGroat says. “With a time of confession, they can reflect on their lives. And with a weekly Eucharist, they can engage in a very meaningful way – in an experiential way – in the kinds of real satisfaction that Jesus gives. As I talk to Millennials in the city, they like that. They don’t come for the show, but to be engaged and to engage.”

Discovered on the Kruse Kronicle the following article by Scot McKnight on the The Gospel for IGens

Emerging adults (those between 18 and 30) form a generation that is largely insensitive to the potency of God’s holiness, and are therefore insensitive to the magnificence of his grace, the shocking nature of his love, and that gratitude forms the core of the Christian life.


Gloomers or the Brokest Generation

I am not sure if Mark Steyn originated these words for today’s current generation who will be inheriting the massive debt that the U.S. is currently incurring but I fear that they will fit for those of my grandchildren’s generation and beyond. A glimpse of the gloom Steyn writes about.

We thought you’d say that! God bless the youth of America! We of the Greatest Generation, the Boomers, and Generation X salute you, the plucky members of the Brokest Generation, the Gloomers, and Generation Y, as in “Why the hell did you old coots do this to us?”

Because, as politicians like to say, it’s about “the future of all our children.” And the future of all our children is that they’ll be paying off the past of all their grandparents. At 12 percent of GDP, this year’s deficit is the highest since the Second World War, and prioritizes not economic vitality but massive expansion of government. But hey, it’s not our problem. As Lord Keynes observed, “In the long run we’re all dead.” Well, most of us will be. But not you youngsters, not for a while. So we’ve figured it out: You’re the ultimate credit market, and the rest of us are all pre-approved!
