Millennials More In Search of Meaning Than Money?

indexI’m always interested in learning more about the people I write for….Which is why I was intrigued to read that the January 8 issue of The Christian Century calls a moratorium on woe-to-the-millennials talk. In his opening column, CC editor John Buchanan argues that the young adults he knows—contrary to studies depicting them as selfish, greedy and narcissistic—are frequently generous and in search of more meaning. Buchanan supports his own experience with findings from a recent New York Times report (“Millennial Searchers,” Dec 1) that concluded millennials are “far more concerned about living a meaningful life than about making a lot of money.”

Buchanan, in summarizing the report’s findings, goes on: “Reaching that goal means being connected to something bigger than self—to others, to work, to a life purpose and to the world itself. Meaning, they discovered, results from being a giver rather than a taker.”
