It is encouraging to hear how the new generation is approaching religion (“Making Their Mark,” June 2008). They seem to want authentic religious experience and service. They also seem to distrust traditional churches and their rituals and practices and have found their own way.
I only hope they do not thoroughly disregard the centuries of faith and meaning people have found in the various churches. We, the older generation, need young people. We do not ask them to follow what has been meaningful to us, but that they help us refind and remake our own faith. We can only pray and support what a new generation will bring to our churches.
