Executive Director of the Fuller Youth Institute Kara Powell recently joined the hosts of radio program FamilyLife Today for three extensive interviews on contemporary issues facing Christian families.
Drawing on Fuller Youth Institute’s Sticky Faith research, Dr. Powell shared insights on what it means to show grace to teenagers, the importance of intergenerational relationships for sustaining faith, and appropriate ways to discuss religious doubts.
“If our faith is only about behaviors, no wonder young people are drifting from the faith. I wouldn’t want a faith that is only about behaviors either,” she says. “The good news is what separates Christianity from every other religion: grace. So, at the heart of Sticky Faith and what we long for—for families—is that we recapture what it means to embrace and have our family life be permeated with grace.”
