The teenagers in our society are at the forefront of remaking religion in Australia. They are often portrayed generally as being less religiously inclined than previous generations. But this survey shows that if you dig a bit deeper there is a lot of diversity among our teens on matters of faith and spirituality. While only a minority follow a faith with strong conviction, as a whole they are not anti-religious. One of the focus groups targeted in this survey were Year 9 and 10 students across three states. From their data six spirituality types were identified; This Worldly, Religiously Committed, Seekers, Spiritual but not Religious, Indifferent, and Nominally Religious.

About this site
"Meditations & Musings" is my humble attempt to share what I have found useful in ministry in an Australian Lutheran School setting. It contains chapels, devotions and other resources I have written, used and adapted in my K-12 school context. If you would like to also share your ideas, resources or start a conversation about mission and ministry in your church- school location, feel free to contact me.
