Letters to the Young

This Comment crystallizes a sensibility that might seem countercultural: that the young—hungry for guidance, advice, expertise, and criticism—have something to learn, and that their elders are a source of wisdom.

Central to Comment's vision is an appreciation that God calls us to a range of vocations and cultural tasks, all of which can be ways for us to cultivate different corners of God's good creation. So here you will find letters not just to a young pastor and parents, but also letters to a young farmer, architect, and philosopher, and many more. Each letter is penned with the conviction that the Lordship of Jesus Christ and the wisdom of the Word have something to say about how we'll pursue those vocations well, for the glory of God and the flourishing of creation.
