Is America losing its religion? Statistics indicate yes, with a rapid decrease in church affiliation and a marked increase in people who don't identify with organized religion. This episode of Church Potluck features Curt Hersey (Communication), Michael Bailey (political science), and Michael Papazian (philosophy), who each help us explore the fall of religiosity, the rise of non-affiliation, and the evolution of religious identities.
Some topics we address in this episode:
- What features of contemporary Christianity are turning people away from the Church?
- Even with this recent decline, religious faith remains resilient in the U.S compared to other industrialized countries. Why? How?
- How does faith get transmitted from generation to generation, and why are these traditional modes failing?
Join us for some food for thought and something to chew on!
