It’s a series of gripping, funny, sad and intimate stories of people grappling with what it means to follow Jesus amidst the cultural issues of our time – set to a soundtrack to immerse you. Come along with us as we take a nuanced dive into what it looks like to be a person of Christian faith living in the modern world. Hosted by Jesse Eubanks and produced by Anna Tran.
#77: Scrolling Alone
In 2009, about a quarter of American high school students said they had “persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness.” By last year it was up to 44 percent, the highest level of teenage sadness ever recorded. For girls, the rate rose to 57 percent. That means more than half of teenage girls feel persistently sad or hopeless. If you stood a teen from 2009 next to a teen from 2022, what would be the most noticeable difference between them? One of them would be on her phone. This episode is in partnership with The Gospel Coalition’s Recorded podcast. Listen to more of Recorded at:
