*NEW FEATURE* Recap Saturday!

Welcome to the weekend and to our newest feature here at Generation Yes: Recap Saturday!  Each week you'll have the opportunity to catch up on whichever blog posts you may have missed, and also check out the kind of things young adults around the country and the world have been thinking, saying, and creating.

What you may have missed this week while you were busy out there in the world:

Wednesday had us wondering whether it's possible to abide by the fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism---"a free and responsible search for truth and meaning"---online.

On Thursday we started compiling a soundtrack for young adulthood (and added a "like" button to posts. You should use it!)

Friday posed the question: what's your ultimate concern?

What various talented, curious, truly awesome young adults have been up to:
