"A good education will land you a good job," "Be an entrepreneur/Start something in a garage or dorm room" and even "Jesus saves" are narratives that collapsed for the millennial generation (born 1982-2002). These narratives, amongst many similar social and religious ones, have lost their meaning and power as millennials question all authorities and struggle to flourish in a world come of age. With their needs for community and success, a strong spirituality, and believing that their gifts should be recognized and can make a difference, millennials increasingly find meaning and purpose outside the church. As they face economic uncertainty, reduced career prospects, unceasing change, as well as civic, global, and ecological uncertainties, however, a large number of millennials are overwhelmed with feelings of anxiety and depression. Caught between hope and fear, millennials leave the church with their values of personal transformation, purpose, community, spirituality, social transformation and ecological awareness. Ironically the church often holds the same values.

The Millenial Narrative is written for pastoral leaders who want to welcome millennials, both inside and outside their congregation. The book draws on the wisdom of the prophetic Book of Joel as a narrative worth living into. Drawing on Joel's three chapters, The Millenial Narrative empowers pastoral leaders to:

- Facilitate the work of mourning Millennials are facing;
- Envision a spiritual community that can welcome millennials;
- Introduce a compassionate God that restores and indwells as the Spirit;
- Reflect on God's judgment through the lens of accountability; and,
- Support and encourage millennials to be a blessing to others.

In addition, pastoral leaders will receive a sermon outline and material for adult education.
