Christian Teens and Faith

This is an interesting article concerning teens and their faith that my son, a youth leader, sent my way.  While the author defines Christian teens broadly, Kenda Creasy Dean does make some observations that are worth considering: “No matter their background, Dean says committed Christian teens share four traits: They have a personal story about God they can share, a deep connection to a faith community, a sense of purpose and a sense of hope about their future” and “she says parents who perform one act of radical faith in front of their children convey more than a multitude of sermons and mission trips.”

Pastors, parents and youth pastors take note.
