Finding commitment in the church

From Time, in an article on nuns with blogs (which thankfully, contrary to my initial thought when I saw it referenced somewhere else, doesn't mean that just because I have a blog I have to become a nun...)

Gen Xers are coming to religious life in a quest for meaning after secular society has failed to meet their needs.

Many also broke from the church when their parents divorced. “My generation,” says Brink “is not good with commitment because we haven’t seen a lot of it.” Now they’re finding a sense of wholeness by binding themselves to their faith.
