Are you seeking to understand the culture of the next generation and don’t know where to turn? I recently read Gen Z (published by Barna Group), which offers relevant facts on today’s youth and valuable advice to their educators and parents. I especially appreciated John Murray’s list of six strategies to help guide today’s youth with godly advice based on the following Scripture passages: Psalm 8, Romans 12, Galatians 3:28, and Ephesians 2:10.

As a science educator, I am most experienced with Murray’s fourth strategy, which recommends that we communicate to students that faith and science are not mutually exclusive, reinforcing the idea that God created the heavens and the earth – and us as His image bearers. This is also my intention through Lightlab, a book that teaches younger children about the nature of light while pointing to God as their Creator and Redeemer. This book also features two renowned scientists, Michael Faraday and James Maxwell, who were devout Christians.
