I'M ALIVE BY PETER FURLER
Very interesting article from Kara Powell from Fuller Youth Institute talking about why so many students don’t stick with their Christian faith after high school. (This was on Relevantmagazine.com)
She says there’s a sociologist names Tim Clydesdale— who says after students graduate from high school. They place important parts of themselves in an "identity lock-box," and their faith is often part of that.
Kara Powell says - "The problem is when your faith is in a lock-box, especially as a college student or emerging adult, you’re making so many important decisions about worldview, and marriage, how you engage in risk behaviors, and vocation, and calling, and all those considerations are made while your faith is locked up in that lock-box. So there is some sort of residual sense that students value the faith, but it’s not influencing their day-to-day, or even major decisions. Given the long-term impact of those decisions throughout their adulthood, it’s pretty disconcerting."
