There has been a lot of talk about the underrepresentation of millennials in churches today. While this generation (those born between 1980-2000) account for 22% of the U.S. population, they only account for 10% of our church population. Many believe this discrepancy is unique to the millennial generation, but research shows the underrepresentation of this age group may actually be due to the life stage of 20-somethings rather than the generation they belong to. So, what’s a church to do? How do we become intentional about including and engaging this group in our church and with Jesus? Here are five easy ways to start:

1. Stop seeing them for the generation they belong to and start seeing them as individuals.

Yes, there are some characteristics of each generation that can be generalized or assumed, but set those assumptions aside. Engage with the 20-somethings as individuals and connect with them based on your firsthand experiences with them, not what pop culture says about them. Because they are a younger generation, it is natural to feel as though they have much to learn, but seeing them as students rather than peers can be a deterrent. Approaching and inquiring with genuine interest may lead to further engagement of your 20-somethings.

2. Communicate and act with both truth and grace.

This particular generation appreciates honesty, transparency, and authenticity. They are often flooded with what “should be” but desire to engage with truth about the human experience as followers of Jesus. All people are messy and broken, and we need to make room for that in our messages, congregations, and interactions with one another. In order to do that, we must operate with both truth and grace. It’s not one or the other.

3. Less abstract, more Jesus here and now.

Let’s all face it, the Bible can be a confusing and challenging story to understand and can be interpreted in many ways. The deep theological roots are important, but we have to remember our audience isn’t full of biblical scholars (most of the time). Salvation and heaven are great, but for younger attendees, heaven seems like a long way off. Finding ways to make the abstract ideas and teachings into concrete and applicable lessons about the love and grace Jesus is offering here and now will engage the 20-somethings in the pews and likely draw them into further relationship with Jesus.

4. Enlist their help, and don’t stop asking for it.

Getting volunteers is hard for a lot of churches, and finding 20-something volunteers can be even more challenging. Despite the challenge, it is important that the 20-somethings attending or visiting your church see someone “like them” involved in different levels of your church community. Whether it’s the welcome wagon, small group leaders, worship team, or community outreach, make sure your ministries reflects everyone in the pews. As they see more leaders “like them,” the more likely they are to get involved too. Now, I know what you’re going to say, “We’ve asked, and they don’t want to!” Keep asking. Seasons of life are always changing – who knows what God is calling them to do in their current season?

I see two routes to success in this business: 1) Focus on artists with well- established followings that you are comfortable that you can sell or 2) Take on less well-known artists on a consignment basis, meaning you don’t actually buy the painting from the artist until the day you sell it. This can be a finicky business–people’s tastes can change and a gallery that is successful one year can find itself struggling enough. So, keep your overhead manageable and watch for changing trends.

Sign up for a bar-tending course at the local community college or adult education center, get a safety certificate if your state requires it, and then you’re ready to start serving. Usually the client will provide the booze and the glasses, you might bring a few mixing tools or even a service cart if you want to get fancy. Demand for this service will run strongest on the weekends, making it a great part time gig!

You don’t need to own a big boat to take people on evening boat tours! You can lease the boat, market the tours and build a business without the overhead.

Would you like to drive a boat for a living? This is your chance!

To make it more fun, you can buy a few small drive-it-yourself speed boats and lead your customers around the local harbor. What could be more fun than that!

I can barely “cook” a frozen dinner, but you may have the cooking skills that I lack! People will pay good money for a really awesome cake for special occasions. Get some great cake pictures up on your website, promote your skills to event planners and build your clientele!

My kids did an upscale sneaker and related goods boutique. This can be a lot of fun but it may be harder than you think to make money. First make absolutely sure your location has great foot traffic—stand there and count heads before you sign a lease! Then develop a distinctive plan for merchandising, and don’t be afraid to mark down what isn’t moving.

Yes, you can start your own clothing line with just a few items, be successful and have a lot of fun along the way! Look at Ralph Lauren who started by selling a couple neck ties and then built that into a multi-billion-dollar empire. Contract out the manufacturing which is the really hard part of the work. Then focus on developing eye-stopping designs and talking it up with potential re-sellers, or sell the items yourself online!

Wouldn’t you enjoy making kids smile and laugh? What a great way to earn some good money, especially at kids’ birthdays and Bar and Bat mitzvahs! Business will be heavily focused on weekends, so you can hold onto your day job as you build your clientele. I met a professional clown who told me that he charged $200 an hour…for that price I’ll put the clown suit on right now!

I’ve been taking a TCC course this term on Clearance Best Place Topshop Womens Petite Corduroy Pocket Pinafore Dress Cheap Sale Footlocker Pictures XCYPf
, delivered via video link from Bristol by Julia Wolf. At some point once the dust of this term has settled, I might write some things about the ideas of the course I’ve found most interesting, in particular the tools of discrete Fourier analysis to get a hold on some useful combinatorial properties of subsets of for example.

For this post, I want to talk instead about a topic that was merely mentioned in passing, the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz. The majority of this post is based on Alon’s original paper, which can be found , and Chapter 9 of Tao and Vu’s book Additive Combinatorics . My aim is to motivate the theorem, give a proof, introduce one useful application from additive combinatorics, and solve Q6 from IMO 2007 as a direct corollary.

What does Nullstellensatz mean? Roughly speaking, it seems to mean ‘a theorem specifying the zeros’. We will be specifying the zeros of a polynomial. We are comfortable with how the zeros of a complex-valued polynomial of one variable behave. The number of zeros is given precisely by the degree of the polynomial (allowing appropriately for multiplicity). It is generally less clear how we might treat the zeros of a polynomial of many variables. The zero set is likely to be some surface, perhaps of dimension one less than the number of variables. In particular, it no longer really makes sense to talk about whether this set is finite or not. The Combinatorial Nullstellensatz gives us some control over the structure of this set of zeros.

The idea behind the generalisation is to view the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra as a statement not about existence of roots, but rather about (combinatorial) existence of non-roots. That is, given a polynomial P(x) of degree n, for any choice of (n+1) complex numbers, at least one of them is not a root of P. This may look like a very weak statement in this context, where we only expect finitely many roots anyway, but in a multivariate setting it is much more intuitively powerful.

Recall that the degree of a monomial is given by the sum of the exponents of the variables present. So the degree of is 6. The degree of a polynomial is then given by the largest degree of a monomial in that polynomial. A polynomial over a field F with degree d might have lots of monomial terms of degree d. Suppose one of these monomials is , where . Then one version of the Combinatorial Nullstellensatz asserts that whenever you take subsets of the base field with , then there is a point with such that .

In other words, you can’t have a box (ie product of sets) of dimension on which the polynomial is zero.

Unsurprisingly, the proof proceeds by induction on the number of variables. Alon’s result proceeds via a more general theorem giving information about the possibility of writing multinomial polynomials as linear combinations of polynomials in one variable.
