Interfaith Lecture Theme :: Forces that Shape Our Daily Lives: The Contemporary Search for Spirituality

The recent studies are countless: organized mainstream religion is on the decline, and we have an emerging class of “nones,” referring to those who assign themselves to no faith tradition at all. But other assessments tell us that while many don’t identify with a mainstream religion, many more are indeed on a journey seeking spirituality and meaning. In this week we look at the evolution of modern faith traditions and ask: How might the “nones” unite with the mainstream to shape a better future?
