Is the church declining?

Will our grandchildren have faith?

How do we connect people to Jesus?

Can one be spiritual but not religious?

Is faith no longer relevant or necessary?

Dr. Diana Butler Bass leads a fascinating discussion of how, both culturally and spiritually, we are in the midst of another of history’s “great awakenings.”

The way people come to faith may be different and the church’s invitation and guidance needs to VERY different, but the Good News of Jesus Christ, faith, and the church are very much alive and relevant and people today may be even more open and eager.
