Big Ideas: Religion in America
Almost every Christian denomination in the U.S. shows signs of growing diversity as white Christians, once the majority in most mainline Protestant and Catholic denominations, give way to younger members, who tend to be of different races, according to a study released by the Public Religion Research Institute. And American evangelicals — once seemingly immune to the decline experienced by their Catholic and mainline Protestant neighbors — are losing numbers and losing them quickly.
What is behind this decline and diversification? We will look further into the study and discuss.
The Big Ideas series encourages thoughtful and respectful discussion on the issues that shape the world around us. Participants are expected to be polite, stay on topic, and respect others' opinions and values. A moderator and at least one community resource person will be on hand to guide the discussion.
