Ethical Society of Boston President Brian King will present some contrasting viewpoints on the rise of the "nones" in America today. James Croft, who spoke for us last year called it a "demographic opportunity that comes along once in a generation." Or does it mean that young Americans no longer feel the need to belong to a community? We will see what sociologists have said about the data and look at ways that groups can respond to these challenges.
This is a follow-up to the lively discussion held after last week's talk by Katrina Scott, but with a focus on how we should adapt and answer the needs of the needs of this new generation that has increasingly turned away from traditional religions.
