I’m a watcher of Context, the Christian current affairs program that comes out of the CBC studios in Toronto. Lorna Dueck and her co-host Sheldon Neil do a great job of examining current affairs from a faith perspective.
One of the most recent programs, hosted by Sheldon Neil, involved a discussion of what has become known as GenZ – the present 5-20 year olds who are growing up in our current technological social media environment. The program is well worth a look and can be found at http://www.contextwithlornadueck.com.
Have a look for yourself. I’m hoping to have a focussed discussion with the St. Laurence junior and senior youth groups called “GenZ Jam” based on a group viewing of the program. We’ll focus on conceptions and misconceptions about youth today, youth and faith, and youth and social involvement.
I’m excited by the prospects.
