Sharon Pearson Christian Educator and Author Episcopal Church   In each edition of GenOn Connect, we will ask someone the same two questions about intergenerational ministry: “What keeps you up at night?” and “What gets you up in the morning?” What keeps you up at night? I am fearful that the Christian faith is not being passed down to future generations. We know the statistics of the “spiritual but not religious” growth in the United States and how many of our youth and young adults (and I would say parents also) have a belief system that has been called “moralistic therapeutic...
