This collection of essays was written by a group of priests who are relatively rare in the Episcopal Church--priests under 35 years of age. In 1997 only 296 Episcopal clergy were from the group commonly known as Generation X; they compromise only 3.5% of the ordained people in full time ministry in the Church. Inspired by that statistic some GenX priests and seminariarns organized a conference called Gathering the NeXt Generation, which was held at Virginia Theological Seminary in June 1997. These essays, while not the actual papers given at the conference, are the result of that conversation and others that continued among GenX priests in the Episcopal Church.
