Move Over, Millennials, Here Comes Generation Z
In a recent New York Times article titled “Move Over, Millennials, Here Comes Generation Z”, author Alex Williams looks into differences between Millennials and Generation Z. As a Diocese, this gives prospective into the group that will one day be the Church. As we apply this view point, we learn how this group views the world and how we, as a church can interact with them. One line that really jumps out is: “Millennials, after all, were raised during the boom times and relative peace of the 1990s, only to see their sunny world dashed by the Sept. 11 attacks and two economic crashes, in 2000 and 2008. Theirs is a story of innocence lost.Generation Z, by contrast, has had its eyes open from the beginning, coming along in the aftermath of those cataclysms in the era of the war on terror and the Great Recession.” A quote from Lucie Greene, the worldwide director of the Innovation Group at J. Walter Thompson, one of the largest advertising agencies in the world. Generation Z will usher in an age of innovation, change, and creativity.
