The Millennial Narrative: Participants Guide is a companion to Jaco
L. Hamman's book The Millennial Narrative: Sharing a Good Life with
the Next Generation. It provides a framework for applying the
book's insights into the millennial generation and ways to reach
that generation by offering them "the good life." "A good education
will land you a good job," "Be an entrepreneur/Start something in a
garage or dorm room" and even "Jesus saves" are narratives that
collapsed for the millennial generation (born 1982-2002). These
narratives, amongst many similar social and religious ones, have
lost their meaning and power as millennials question all
authorities and struggle to flourish in a world come of age. With
their needs for community and success, a strong spirituality, and
believing that their gifts should be recognized and can make a
difference, millennials increasingly find meaning and purpose
outside the church. As they face economic uncertainty, reduced
career prospects, unceasing change, as well as civic, global, and
ecological uncertainties, however, a large number of millennials
are overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and depression. Caught
between hope and fear, millennials leave the church with their
values of personal transformation, purpose, community,
spirituality, social transformation and ecological awareness.
Ironically the church often holds the same values. Reaching the
Millennial Generation is written for pastoral leaders who want to
welcome millennials, both inside and outside their congregation.
The book draws on the wisdom of the prophetic Book of Joel as a
narrative worth living into. Drawing on Joel's three chapters,
Reaching the Millennial Generation empowers pastoral leaders to: -
Facilitate the work of mourning Millennials are facing; - Envision
a spiritual community that can welcome millennials; - Introduce a
compassionate God that restores and indwells as the Spirit; -
Reflect on God's judgment through the lens of accountability; and,
- Support and encourage millennials to be a blessing to others. In
addition, pastoral leaders will receive a sermon outline and
material for adult education.
