New Habits for Nones: Practicing Digitally-Integrated Ministry in the Post-Christian World with Elizabeth Drescher and Keith Anderson

It’s been hard to miss the near-constant news media coverage of the growth in the population of so-called “Nones”—people who answer “none” when asked with what religion they most identify or affiliate. It is often assumed that Nones are atheists or otherwise unreligious (or even irreligious). But the data tell is that this is not the case. The majority of Nones believe in God or a universal spirit and many have robust spiritual practices that are not inconsistent with more progressive Christian traditions and values. The challenge for ministry leaders now is how to understand Nones on their own terms, beyond the data and often over-generalizing commentary and outside religious assumptions about being unaffiliated or unidentified with institutional religion might mean.
