Philippines Adolescent rebellion n fell But many of the young folks do return to fold By LOUIS CASSELS United Press International Johnny attended Sunday School faithfully from the time he was old enough to toddle until he graduated from high school His parents were pleased that he was getting such fine religious training The other day Johnny came home from his freshman year at college He shocked his mother and father by refusing to go to church with them He said he just wasnt interested in that stuff any more Johnnys story is not uncom mon Thousands of boys and girls leave the church during their late teens and early twen ties Some return when they are older Some never come back WHY DOES IT happen Wha causes the great exodus o church members in the 16 to 24 age bracket The Episcopalian a magazine published by the Episcopa Church sought answers from college chaplains heads of sec ondary schools and others who arc closely associated with young people They offered one comforting explanation and several others that parents and pastors may find disturbing The comforting explanation i that Johnny inevitably goes through a period of adolescent rebellion in which he asserts his right to think for himself His rejection of religion may there fore be a temporary gesture in tended to dramatize his inde pendence of adult authority IN THIS CONNECTION it was pointed out

luring their years in Sunday School to tide them through the period of doubt and questioning that begins late in high school or early in college What docs this imply in terms religious education The
