“Engaging the Religious Nones”, a two-part adult education offering led by Rev. Dr. Ruben Rosario-Rodriguez. Please mark your calendar for this exciting discussion on Sunday, March 13, and March 20 at 7:00 PM.
Description: The number of religious “nones” in the U.S.—adults who describe their religious identity as atheist, agnostic, or “nothing in particular” (Pew Research Center, 2018)—has tripled. Closer analysis reveals that many nones associate organized religion with intolerance and injustice while still thirsting after some form of spirituality. As a church theologian and a Minister of the Word and Sacrament active in the mission of the Presbyterian Church (USA), Dr. Ruben Rosario-Rodreuiez has concluded that the church’s own actions have contributed to the church’s current crisis, which is why so many—including many Christians—no longer consider the church an institution worth defending. So instead of focusing on what the church can do to bring Millennials and Gen Z back into the fold (very little), the church ought to listen to what these Nones are saying to take spiritual inventory and get its own house in order.
