Two worthwhile stories on millenials

In the last two days I’ve bumped into two worthwhile stories about millenials (18-30 year olds).  One story was referred to me by a friend from the Winnipeg Free Press that addresses the changing landscape of journalism as Generation Y enters professional communication roles: Generation Y making over media.  The second story was delivered in a RoundTable discussion here at CMU by sociologist James Penner as he shared his recent findings on Hemorrhaging Faith, a journey in (and out of) faith by youth and young adults in Canada.  Both of these stories are pushing me to consider the style and substance of my own interests in creative media that is faith-affirming.
