Some perspective on contemporary youth spirituality : A 'need to know' for church school religious education
Rossiter, Graham. (2011). Some perspective on contemporary youth spirituality : A 'need to know' for church school religious education. Religious Education Journal of Australia. 27(1), pp. 9 - 15.
This article presents a summary portrait of contemporary youth spirituality, drawn collectively from a range of research studies over the last decade. It shows how there has been a significant change in the way people construct spirituality, and this implies a different role for religion. Many young people, as well as adults, have a more individualistic, subjective, eclectic, secular spirituality. Identifying the change is an important starting point for a church school religious education that sets out to enhance and resource pupils' spirituality.
