I co-founded Pan Orthodox United, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization created by young people for young people, because I believe in focusing on the good. I know that every year more and more young people leave Christianity, are filled with doubt and desire, and embark on spiritual or worldly quests to find themselves. I know this, because I am one of those people. I have doubted the existence of God, went months without going to church, and am always struggling for truth. I believe that most people that have left organized religion will one day be curious and contemplate things like their purpose in life, and the possibilities of the afterlife. I believe that we need to be there when they do, to give an Orthodox perspective on life and what happens after. I know that if we come together to provide resources, answer questions, and build relationships, young people will stop leaving and those that have left will start coming back home. I did.
For this reason, we recently outlined a new program called Solve 60. We want to reverse the trend of young people leaving Orthodoxy by raising the level of discussion, education, and involvement. Our plan has a few manageable steps, but it will take everyone working together to make it happen.
