GRANDPARENTS DREAMING, GRANDCHILDREN SEEING: CHRISTIAN FORMATION IN AN AGE OF NONES
Dr. Michael King
The fastest growing denomination in America, according to one survey, is the “Nones”—the 45 million or so Americans who report none of the above when asked which church, denomination, religion they belong to. It’s probably no coincidence that in turn the Auburn Center for the Study of Theological Education says enrollment across 205 seminaries in North American peaked in 2004 and has been declining since.
Finding our way through this world is the adventure Eastern Mennonite Seminary, and many of us, are navigating. If you are interested in pondering with us how churches, seminaries, Christian universities, Christians, adherents of other faiths, or the Nones in many of our families and communities, will find our way, you may want to join our convocation, Tuesday August 27, 11:00 a.m. Martin Chapel, EMS second floor.
