Fewer Millennials are going to church than their parents did, so what gives? Is it laziness, apathy, too many avocados for breakfast? Andrew, Georgia and Linda discuss all aspects of faith, from denominations to mental health, abuse within the church and more. Each episode dives into a topic from a millennial viewpoint, and in discussion and debate we hope to challenge and strengthen your faith.
