To Mind a Generation Gap You Have to Find It

Brad Drell has opened an interesting topic of discussion in Minding The Generation Gap In The Anglican Blogosphere.  But two comments are in order.

  1. I’ve always thought that the break between the Boomers and Generation X was in 1965.  But dividing lines like this are a tricky business, and there are "variations on a theme" within generations, as is certainly the case with the Boomers.
  2. If there are more liberal Anglican/Episcopal bloggers amongst the Boomers, it’s probably due to the fact that many of those who would have been conservative ones bailed out on the Episcopal Church in the membership contraction of the 1970’s, as is the case with me.  That may explain many things that has happened in TEC in the last three decades.
