Item description for Thank You for Asking: Conversing With Young Adults About the Future Church by Sara Wenger Shenk, Deborah Good & Bethany Spicher...

Overview
This is a book of stories-the stories of young adults as told to other young adults who are working hard with imagination, longing, and love to weave a coherent faith and way of life. The stories provide exemplary illustrations of how young adults are drawing vibrant threads from the wonderful, but somewhat frayed heritage they've been given and weaving them into a new coherency. They show the way toward a future church that will be authentic, down-to-earth and life giving for their generation. The young adults in this book invite pastors, parents and friends into a potentially transformative dialogue about the stories and practices we use to make sense of our world and to form a way of life. The work young adults do is challenging work, often lonely work; but when done in the company of loved and respected others, it is the heart and soul of what makes life good. As we enter into genuine conversation with the questions and visions of young adults, our faith communities will be transformed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Thank You for Asking: Conversing With Young Adults About the Future Church?

why do your stories count?  Dec 15, 2006
This book represents a good way to start conversations with young adults. It also helped me as a parent and pastor to see why the story telling of adults is so important. I am learning from young adults what matters to young adults, not just coming with what I think is needed. I would recommend it to all who minister to this age group. It is Mennonite, but would apply to other church groups as well. Marla
