A couple of articles came through my facebook news feed earlier today. The first is from McCrindle Research on Faith and Belief in Australia. The second is from the Fuller Youth Institute about making discipleship a priority for our church (they’re the same people who are behind Growing Young which we’ll be looking at later in the year).
What connects them is McCrindle’s finding that, for a lot of Aussies, ‘the greatest attraction to investigating spirituality and religion is seeing people live out a genuine faith.’ How do we equip & help people to ‘live out a genuine faith’? We usually call that ‘discipleship’.
Coincidence? Or maybe God’s trying to tell me something…?
What do you reckon?
