Millennials and Lutheran Ethics: A Doorway Back Into Connection
April 2016: Meet the Staff (Volume 16 Issue 4)
Millennials are a hot topic in churches today–how do we stop churches from hemorrhaging them. Writing as a millennial herself, Dean examines why millennials are saying they’re leaving churches, what they are looking for in a faith community, and how Lutheran ethics can provide a space for millennials to re-engage.
