In Episode 9 Googling God with Mike Hayes, I had the opportunity to hear author of Googling God and managing editor of BustedHalo.com speak. He was the keynote speaker at a local diocesan conference called Identity Theft: Is Your Catholic Identity Safe?
Mike spoke on the two distinct generations of young adults, Gen X and Millennials. He discusses what characterizes these two generations and how we, as Catholic ministers, can reach these two generations and help them connect to the Church and more importantly, how we as the Church can connect to them. He tells us how to do this by describing the different aspects of technology available to us today.
This podcast is longer than most of my podcasts, but I feel what he had to say is important and vital to anyone working with young adults. If you fall in this category, or are a DRE, catechist, or just want to know how to use what is available to connect to others in your parish or around the world, then this is the podcast for you.
I would like to thank Mike for allowing me to record his keynote address and if you would like to purchase his book (which I highly encourage) Googling God, you may either go to the Busted Halo site or to the Paulist Press site.
