Here's a fabulous "opinion" piece from Episcopal LIFE Online about a young woman in Princeton and her encounter with a college worker - chaplain - and the change in her life. It is reflective and points the way to where the Episcopal Church can be meeting the needs of young adults.
Read "A different kind of truth: College student falls in love with Anglicanism" and I hope you'll agree.
BTW - Paul Farmer's book "Mountains beyond Mountains" is still a great book and has had a profound effect on JD's family (esp one niece in coming to her vocation.)
Would that we all could have this kind of effect on a young person's life? Perhaps we can! Why shouldn't we all be able to listen and share out of our own experience??
