Friends Talking Faith

December 12, 2017 – Faith & Religion: Relevance of Religious Institutions


with Dr. Paul McCuistion


Season 10, Episode 50

 This episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys was recorded live at South University College of Theology, in Orlando, Florida. We’ll be talking with students, professors, and folks from the community about faith and the relevance of religion in our daily lives. According to the Pew Research Center, in studies conducted over the last decade — while roughly 90% of Americans say that they believe in God — affiliations with the institutional church have been in sharp decline. The percentage of adults describing themselves as religiously affiliated has shrunk from 83% to 77% over the last 10 years. Only about 50% of the US adult population says they attend religious services at least monthly. We’ll talk about what these statistics might mean in terms of the relevancy and importance of religion in the lives of Americans today. Our conversation with Dr. Paul McCuistion, and the audience at South University College of Theology – that’s coming up on this episode of Friends Talking Faith.

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
