Episcopalian Gen Xer Clergy Gather The Next Generation

Gathering The Next Generations: A project for Episcopalian clergy in the United States, born between 1961 and 1981. There’s a book of the same name edited by Nathan Humphrey – a collection of essays well worth reading. For an online review check out the Alban Institute Congregations Journal review by Bonnie Perry

The first section deals with issues surrounding the process for selecting and training the church’s clergy as they relate to Generation X. The second section looks at curacy as mentoring, campus ministries and bivocational ministry. The third section looks at four groups whose presence in the ordained ministry has grown significantly in GenX: Xers, African Americans, Gay/Lesbian/Bi/Transexual persons, and women. The fourth section addresses issues directly related to parish ministry by members of Generation X.

By the way, I’ve just started another blog – Duncan’s Ad Land – focusing on TV adverts online – www.tvadverts.blogspot.com

(Note – in 2006 Duncan’s TV Ad Land moved to www.duncans.tv. In August 2008 the site became The Inspiration Room Daily.)
