I had a meeting with our pastor and youth pastor this morning that was quite discouraging. I wish I had the collective of pilgrims past in the room. They both described the post COVID experience of getting youth out of the house. Parents, but especially teens are reluctant to go out and meet with friends because they can do all the "socializing" from their homes through their phones. Even if we offered a scholarship to Spain, their assessment was that we would have a difficult time getting youth to go. Have any of you have a similar experiences with family, or other teens you know? Any luck understanding its true origins, or what will entice youth to go? We live in the Pacific Northwest where outdoor activity is normally within the culture.
