I am hanging out this week with THE Dr. Josh Packard, the Executive Director of Springtide Research Institute and accomplished researcher and speaker on young people in America, specializing in their spirituality and their relationship with religious groups and faith leaders. With over 10 years of teaching experience, Josh has been a guest on numerous radio shows and podcasts and has been an invited speaker at many conferences, events, and workshops. He has been published widely in both academic and popular outlets, including Christianity Today, The Aspen Institute, The Huffington Post, Desert News, and Christian Science Monitor, among others, and is the author of numerous books. Josh earned his Ph.D. in sociology from Vanderbilt University and did his undergraduate work in English at Texas Lutheran University.
Dr. Packard and I speak about Gen Z's status as the Loneliest Generation, Gen Z's relationship with institutional religion, and some of Springtide's most fascinating and pertinent findings in their recent Mental Health series! Listen to grow in compassion for and understanding of Gen Z's mental health and the Church's role in it all.
