Description

Young people are doing faith differently. They are redefining community, ministry and ritual for a new era. In the face of planetary crisis, the next generation no longer see faith as a private matter, instead they are integrating it with activism and the need for systemic change. Influenced by the wealth of different teachings and traditions available around them, their identities are increasingly multifaceted and emphatically global.

This collection of stories and interviews with young adults and their allies explores this new landscape, reflecting both the energy and inspiration of the next generation and the tremendous challenges they face. It points towards an exciting evolution in the way we are relating to the sacred.

Reviews

'In an age of social isolation and spiritual poverty, this book is a testament to the growing landscape of innovative community and justice leaders who are re-imagining our world anew. With insight and clarity, the profiled leaders speak with courage and hope about this emerging moment in our collective story.'
- Casper ter Kuile, Ministry Innovation Fellow, Harvard Divinity School

'To read this book is to leap from one immersive youthful narrative of struggle, feeling and playful experimentation to another in a constellation of voices that shimmers with promise. It is to become intimate with a movement bigger than its name or categorization; it is to be part of a Lingering. One gets the sense that 'God', whatever you might think of the nature of creation or the divine, is back at the loom, weaving new embroideries of possibility that will reconfigure the fabric of our lives. I cannot help but believe that this story of amazing grace is true.'
- Bayo Akomolafe, PhD, author of These Wilds Beyond our Fences: Letters to my Daughter on Humanity’s Search for Home

'Generation Y, Spirituality and Social Change by Justine Huxley looks to not only bridge the gap between generations, giving insight on how younger generations gather, think, and most importantly, believe. It acts both to support youth to get further organised and act against the threats to humanity, as well as being a call to older generations to listen.'
- Stephen Shashoua, Founder of Plan C: Culture and Cohesion and Co-Director at The Caravanserai Collective

'Mark Fisher once claimed that 'capitalism seamlessly occupies the horizon of the thinkable'. But in this collection, we hear the power of a radical imagination that challenges old delimitations of the possible. The voices gathered here express an emerging vision, both spiritual and political. They articulate efforts to honour the inseparability of transforming the self and the world. They reject the reductive, atomising and disempowering narratives of recent decades. And, amidst the twilight of neoliberalism, they illuminate new spaces for committed inquiry and courageous action.'
- Guhyapati, Founder of Eco-Dharma Centre, Spain
