This is one of the first books of its kind welcoming the voices of young adults in a discussion of faith, change, and community.  Young adults (18-30) are searching for a church that demands their involvement, whether it is in mission, worship, theology, or daily life. They want a church that is not just relevant but one that matters - that can change them and the communities around them. This book looks that the increasing attraction among young adults to traditional elements of the faith such as daily prayer, liturgical tradition, semi-monastic community, and more.  

In a time of hyper-marketing and information overload, many are seeking a place to find deep and authentic expressions of the faith rooted in centuries of tradition and witness.  The young adults in this book offer wonderful testimonies about their walk of faith as they search, serve, pray, and grow in community.

Drawing upon the proven success at St. Hilda s House in New Haven, CT, this book provides stories and narratives not only from the author but from 22 young adult who are involved in its mission and ministry.

About the Author:

THE REV. ROBERT HENDRICKSON is an Episcopal priest and serves as the Sub-Dean of Saint John's Cathedral in Denver Colorado and previously served as program director of the St. Hilda's House young adult residential internship program and the Ascension House new clergy training program, and as Curate at Christ Church, New Haven.

Review:

Hendrickson's voice is joined by those of many young adult interns of two communities, who have contributed short essays that complement his own. Some chapters are composed entirely by young adults.

Hendrickson's voice reminds clergy and lay people of the gifts already present within the church and assures them that these gifts, when presented authentically, have the power to keep it vital in the years to come.
