How do musical preferences of youth influence conceptions of transcendence and imminence of the Divine? This article will address this question based upon responses of teens to a Life Meaning Inventory administered by the Youth Theological Initiative at Candler School of Theology. The teens' responses will point toward important philosophical questions that wrest the foundations of Christian theology; this is to say that these questions position the youth minister in a unique position to address the polarity of transcendence and immanence in Christian thought. As such, this essay suggests that a discussion of transcendence and immanence offers a new means of thinking about or re-thinking the practice of music in youth ministry.1
