Abstract:
For the Christian religious education of Orthodox youth, specifically high school and college students, there is a growing focus on love of and service to the needy neighbor. This focus is long in coming: the Orthodox churches in the United States have generally not been known for their social outreach to those outside their own ethnicity and a good place to change this is through educating our youth. This focus is also much needed among a population of youth in America who have been called “Generation Me” and who might not naturally look outward in their spiritual pilgrimage.
