In almost every country there is a strong need to find new solutions to tackle the constant abandonment of churches. Sometimes to falsify numbers are the so-called “non-practicing believers”.
Young people, new generations are the future of our churches. It may seem obvious, but young people continue to defect the churches and there are not really good strategies to contain the phenomenon. Now we and our churches don’t know how to involve them more, make them protagonists and make them active and constant elements. What are the possible solutions? Difficult to answer but every church is chasing time, the society in constant change and the new generations just to find winning solutions.
It would perhaps be appropriate to include a percentage of young people in each assembly in order to give them training and to enable them to better understand every aspect of the church-world? Perhaps we must urge young people to find new words that express their relationship with God?
May our faith and our desire to communicate the Gospel be a reliable compass that shows us the right direction.
