May 13, 2014 – Faith & Culture: Religion and Millennials in the 21st Century
Season 5, Episode 7
This program was recorded before a live studio audience in the Carlton Student Union at Stetson University in Deland, Florida. On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we have a conversation with the students of Stetson about faith and the relevance of religion for the Millennial generation in the 21st century.
The Pew Research Center says this: ” By some key measures, Americans ages 18 to 29 are considerably less religious than older Americans. Fewer young adults belong to any particular faith community compared to older people today. Also they’re less likely to be religiously affiliated than their parents’ and grandparents’ were, when younger. Fully one fourth of the Millennial generation are unaffiliated with any particular faith group. And more young people say that religion “isn’t very important in their lives” compared to the elder generation.”
The topics for this program were selected by students at Stetson University. These young adults have some “significant” questions for us around the issues of inclusion regarding faith communities and religious authority.
