The future of faith
Diana Butler Bass, in a Huffington Post blog, writes about the “two significant cultural forces reshaping the religious future.” One such cultural force comprises the increasing number of those who identify themselves as the religiously unaffiliated (sometimes called the “nones”). The other cultural force is “the rise of religious pluralism and immigrant faith in everyday life throughout the West.” Because of these two forces she says the church needs to be thinking in new ways. “It is time for people of faith to be our very best, most creative, most open-minded, most neighborly selves, not otherwise,” says Bass.
