What’s the future of religion in America? Award-winning journalist Ray Suarez explored that question in an address to the Interfaith Action of Greater St. Paul Annual Assembly on May 30.
“Even the most optimistic among us about the future of faith communities has to concede that, writ large, as an American institution, religion with a capital R no longer speaks with the authority, the convening power, it once did,” said Suarez.
At a time when loneliness poses “one of the most compelling threats to individuals’ health,” what’s needed he said is a “convincing demonstration model of what community and commitment, a life of joy might look like. Find the things people yearn for as they look for connection and community.”
