Looking forward to speaking tonight on the challenge of the missing generation at New Horizon tonight, exploring why so many 20-30s are walking away from church. A little while back Os Guinness argued that the reason that 20 somethings are leaving the church in droves in the USA is because of the [quote_simple]”ugliness of the Christian right”[/quote_simple]. You can see him arguing that here: ( around 11 mins in). My work with The Evangelical Alliance has focussed a lot on this area. So I would really love your wisdom on what you perceive the challenges to be.
What do you think? Does he have a point?
Is it different where you are?
If it is true what can we do about it?
Os’s book the case for civility is excellent I recommend it wholeheartedly.
