Looking for Authenticity

As a pastor, I regularly receive statistics from church related research results. These mostly cover cultural phenomena because of generations influences, geopolitical, geo-spiritual, and other factors.

The most resent research zoned in on the perception of the millennials. Results from a considerable amount of research revealed two non-negotiable values from the collective thinking of this group: Authenticity and community.

I want to encourage you to consider these values. They are not that difficult to make available; who among us doesn't appreciate authenticity and community? Being honest about the challenges of life, and connecting beyond the mere "Hello" is within all or ability.

A little adjustment brings tremendous results as these two values are indeed Biblical. Jesus said, "love one another as I have loved you" (John 15:12). That Christ-Statement captures these values - Love being the key.
