Spiritual But Not Religious: Living faith in the world today
In the 2012 survey by the Pew Religion and Public Life Project, nearly a fifth of those polled said that they were not religiously affiliated  and nearly 37 percent of that group said they were "spiritual" butE not "religious." Between 1990 and 2010, the number of Americans who claimed to have no religious affiliation more than tripled, from 14 million to 46 million. This makes the so-called nonesindividuals who respond to questions about their religious affiliations with "none"the fastest growing "religious" group in the United States. So what does this mean for the church? What does this mean for Progressive Brethren?

Linda A. Mercadante, professor at Methodist Theological School in Ohio and author of Beliefs Without Borders: Inside the Minds of the Spiritual but Not Religious, challenges our understanding of the SBNR (Spiritual but not religious). Based on interviews from nearly 80 self-professed nones Mercadante notes a recurring theme: for most nones, their rejection of organized religion did not equate to a rejection of God but rather provided a context for a principled reimagining of God. What can we learn from the nones as they challenge and discern traditional understanding of God and faith practice?

Join us as we explore together the cultural and faith trend of the SBNR and seek where God is leading us, individually and as a denomination.
