Forum Nov 2013 4 Intergenerational Spirituality

  1. 1. Parish Forum Update: Intergenerational Spirituality What: An afternoon workshop of two panels, related to spiritual education at CCDP with concerned parishioners and outside experts Intention: • To explore what attracts and keeps children and youth engaged in Christianity today • To understand the concerns of elders about why their children and grandchildren “don’t go to church” • To bring new insights and perspectives to the topic • To practise open and respectful listening; and • To begin new and mutually supportive cross-generational relationships in the church. Long-term goals:  Sustainable youth participation in congregation and parish life;  Improved family relationships;  Intergenerational listening, understanding & learning We are looking for answers, both are own and those of experts to questions such as “Why are young people not interested in church?” and “Why are young people leaving church?” I will be seeking the involvement of CCDP members of all ages in the coming months, including seeking volunteers for participation in the panel. In preparation, please think about what has most inspired your the development of spiritual life. I have undertaken research and will be providing articles and reviews in preparation for productive discussion. This is something we can re-imagine together.
  2. 2. If you would like to discuss youth spiritual development further please feel free to contact me. Emily Chatten 416-792-8101 elwchatt@gmail.com
