An Uncomfortable Lunch with the Pastors

We recently came across a story of a group of pastors in Washington State who get together on a monthly basis. This group spans many different streams of Christianity, which tends to make everyone a little uncomfortable at some point, but the group gathers to pray with one another, have lunch, and share what they are seeing.

The group embraces the tension of their differences, doesn’t try to convert anyone to their stream, and makes people wonder why they go… but in the end, it is a positive experience for all involved.

So, we want to know… do YOU take part in anything like this?

Why or why not?

Where Do the Religiously Unaffiliated Come From?

A closer look at the trends driving the growth of the unaffiliated may suggest that the trend is in part a result of those with a low religious commitment being more comfortable stating they are not religious, as those with that commitment level shifted by 9% toward unaffiliated. In addition, the overall growth of the nonreligious, including atheists and agnostics has grown from 10% of Americans to 23% of Americans.   Click here to get the full story.
