Tom Beaudoin, PhD, an associate professor of theology at Fordham’s Graduate School of Religion and Religious Eduaction, will appear on a CBS Religion and Culture interfaith special that will look at how spirituality is evolving in our culture and what it means for religious institutions.
While more Americans move away from organized religion, many still profess a belief in God and consider themselves spiritual, claiming to encounter God and the sacred in nature and in their relationships with friends and family rather than within the traditional setting of a church.
One of the largest demographics driving this shift in spirituality are millennials, young people between the ages of 18 to 34. Beaudoin discusses why many millennials do not want to be defined by one particular religious tradition, even if they were raised in one.
