Millennials: Generation Unaffiliated



Millennials, a.k.a. Generation Y, are more disassociated from mainstream institutions – political parties, organized religion, marriage – than are older Americans. In fact, they're the most politically unaffiliated group the Pew poll has ever seen.

Millennials’ “don’t join ‘em” attitude extends somewhat to their views on organized religion, with almost 30 percent saying they are unaffiliated with any religion. That’s in contrast to 21 percent of Gen Xers, 16 percent of boomers, and 9 percent of Silents who report no religious affiliation.

But that doesn’t mean Millennials aren’t interested in religious matters. In fact, 86 percent of Millennials say they believe in God, and about 58 percent say they’re “absolutely certain” that God exists, according to a 2012 survey by Pew Research Center’s Religion & Public Life Project.

I don't think the issue is with Praise Bands as a way of leading a congregation into worship. The bigger issue has been the focus of "me." Many times we approach worship for my benefit. "I need to hear from God today, I need a touch, I need a healing".

And many songs are more about how I benefit from God. Granted we need to remember and be thankful for the many ways God has blessed us but worship is about bringing him glory. It is not about how I feel, it is not even if I like the music or not. Worship often starts with a choice - I choose to worship.

I will agree that worship should always participatory. We are called to worship as a community (again it is not about me). If the Praise Band is not leading the congregation into worship, fix it or get a new one. Let's just not judge them all as being wrong. God uses different ways to reach different people.

“I have many problems in my life and have been to so many spell casters with no results and as a result of this, I ended up in a huge debt.One day I used internet and felt some kind of strange but kind and gentle force as if someone was guiding me to search for spell casters. I can’t remember the words I typed in the search engine but I was directed to Dr Asiku website. And that was it! I felt so lucky to have found his website. It all happened so naturally and easily and I am glad it did.No words can express the feeling I had.Despite all the bad experiences I had with FAKE spell casters on the internet in the past,nothing could stop me from reaching my dreams,so I ordered a spell from Dr Asiku of asikushrine@gmail.com.I had sleepless nights and was was very worried because I promised myself I won’t approach a spell caster for help but did as it was time for me to help myself,I stop crying and stop feeling sorry for myself.I also knew there was someone out there who is capable of helping me.I ordered a spell from DR Asiku and it took only a little more than 3 weeks for the results to show and it is getting better and better.I have never been so happy. Never ever did I think that I could find a spell caster to help me fix any problems.I am so glad I found Dr Asiku,he is such a gentle,a kind person who has a positive impact on my life.His services are highly recommended.He is always there and responds to your emails which is very rare of a spell caster.I completely understand that some people has been misled by fake doctors but my people be rest assured that good thing are not easy to come by Dr Asiku of asikushrine@gmail.com has come to cast spell to change life he is one of a kind thanks to you doc and for you out there that listen to my testimony i luv you all and i am happy once again.

We just recently added guitars, along with the piano, to our worship. And while they are amplified we made sure not to drown anyone one out. We want people to sing, not for us, not even with us per se, but to sing from their hearts to Jesus. We try to emphasize that its not about "us" on stage, its about worshipping God.

Good points, certainly we need to fight against the consumerism mindset even with our worship...worship isn't what I get out of it, rather it is all about ascribing "worth", glory, honor and praise to Him...because of who He is and certainly what He's done.

THANKS TO GREAT DR BRAVE FOR SOLVING MY PROBLEMS TODAY.

My name is Nakita Shelton,am from California in USA.i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr.Brave brought my husband back to me, i had three lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one qaurrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. i tried to be stronge just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just two day and that my husband will come crawlling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after two days i heard a knock on the door, in a great suprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.thats why i want to say a big thank you to Dr.Brave. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at:bravespellcaster@gmail.com CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS.

I happen to agree. I'm a worship pastor charged with leading music pretty much each Sunday, and I fear that this would happen to me as well, even though I'm totally 'participatory' in my approach.

I carried out a survey at my church and asked the respondents to mention three (3) songs that bless them the most. My hope was to minister to these people right where they're at. The result: I had seventy two (72) titles mentioned. Only nine (9) of these were mentioned more than once. In other words, 63 song titles were single mentions. It made me realize just how diverse the congregation is that I minister to each Sunday morning. Additionally, I realized that I risk having spectators for a while, since the tastes represented are more diverse than I could have imagined.

What does this mean for me? I'm not sure I have all the answers, but I know the following: First, the songs that were mentioned allowed me to tell the general musical taste of the congregants. Know thy people! Second, with this in mind, I have the responsibility of teaching songs that will become our local church repertoire. Hopefully, this way, I will encourage participation. Third, I will keep asking them questions by way of surveys. Why? Because the congregants relish the opportunity to be heard. Nothing encourages enthusiastic participation like the feeling among the congregation that both they and their voice matters. Finally, I have the responsibility to lead my people from this place of 'enjoying worship music' to the place of 'enjoying God through the ministry of worship music'. After all, "Man's chief end is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever" (from the Westminster Shorter Catechism).

Thanks for articulating what my husband and I have struggled to put to words... we enjoy contemporary Christian music in many places in our lives EXCEPT worship. We want accompaniment -- not a rock concert. We want the focus on worshiping, praising, surrendering and empowering ourselves in community with God & our brothers & sisters in Christ -- not a praise leader giving some bloated testimony as to why he chose the next song for us to sing. We want to respect and embrace the theological roots of our liturgy -- not have one of the Bible readings/lessons cut to accommodate yet another song.

For those that insist that contemporary worship is THE FUTURE: Please don't tell us it's an age-thing; it's not. Please don't tell us contemporary worship is the most popular, growing service simply because of the music; it's not. When considering other factors, like the service being offered at the nation's preferred worship time and/or during children's Sunday School, any worship style will become the most popular during that sweet spot on Sunday morning (as studies have shown). Ultimately, please don't tell us there's no room for traditional and woven worship anymore. That suggests there may not be room for people like us anymore.

I think the author very clearly illustrates that, based on Lutheran liturgy, the praise band has evolved away from the original intent. It's not a judgment per se but an observation -- and an accurate one at that for many churches. The very complexity of contemporary, syncopated music makes it difficult for a non-musician to participate. On the surface it's easy to say, "fix it or get a new one" but the challenge remains of how a praise band can lead a congregation into worship when the complexity of the worship it part of the problem. I'm not sure how a praise band/leader fixes that. Hold music classes?
