You have likely read (or read about) the recent flurry of activity surrounding the article on CNN’s Belief Blog by Rachel Held Evans, “Why millennials are leaving the church” (July 27, 2013). (You can read it at http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/07/27/why-millennials-are-leaving-the-church/.)
She followed this a few days later with another article on the same blog, “Why millennials need the church” (August 2, 2013). (That post is at http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/08/02/why-millennials-need-the-church/.)
The blogosphere has been quite busy in the wake of her posts; a simple, brief search will yield plenty of hits for articles, posts, and comments across the spectrum.
One thoughtful reply worth reading is by Brett McCracken on the Washington Post’s On Faith Blog, entitled “How to keep Millennials in the church? Let’s keep church un-cool” (July 31, 2013). Brett’s article is at http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-faith/wp/2013/07/31/how-to-keep-millennials-in-the-church-lets-keep-church-un-cool/.
