Baby boomers not lacking in spirituality

Baby boomers do not lack in spirituality, according to Right Reverend Ray Coster, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church in New Zealand.

He says they just expressed it in different ways.

He said while baby boomers and their children were the ones most likely not to belong to a church because they struggled with the institution of church and its formality, “They still have a sense of the unknown, the mystery, the wonder of life. They may still have a sense there may well be a God, or not know what it is but a power greater than us.”

He says he understands the public’s scepticism of religion and its leaders because of inappropriate conduct and behaviour across denominations.

“There is no excuse, every leader who preaches the Bible needs to adhere to the Bible.”
