Outreach week

Check out the article in the Lantern:

This was on the heels of our outreach week surveys. "Young people are moving away from religion toward a more open spirituality."

46% of students said they believed in something other than monotheism.
67% gave a secular answer for the purpose of life (ie to live for yourself)

This is what we run into all the time. I'm going to talk a bit in the next couple days about our outreach week in more detail but suffice it to say that students at OSU and in the midwest are becoming more and more "spiritual" (interested in spiritual things, though mostly with an eastern religious bend) than they are "religious."

Start out by checking out the article. More later as I try and reenter this blog-world and update you into our lives and ministry!
