I found this article instructive about how the San Francisco 49ers are adapting the way they teach and communicate with players. The head coach recognized that they are dealing with millennials, whose modes of communication and attention spans are vastly different from past generations. This articles is obviously not religious or theological, but I gathered three tactics the 49ers are using to help in the way I teach the Bible to teenagers. In particular, I was impacted by his mention of the way kids communicate via images.
