Well, it’s Monday again, and…what’s this? Another video featuring me?
A couple of weeks ago, I participated in a video panel discussion with Tim O’Donnell, who you may remember I featured a couple of months ago with his book, A View From the Back Pew. We talked about the cultural phenomenon of people calling themselves “Spiritual but not Religious,” among other topics. Tim was the “Spiritual but not Religious” voice. I represented the “Religious but Outside the Mainstream Church” voice as a house church pastor. We were joined by a pastor from Michigan, Bob Cornwall, who represented “institutional” Christianity. And Evita Ochel, who writes Evolving Beings moderated for us.
The video is, needless to say, awesome, but pretty long at an hour, and you can watch it if you like. Fast forward to about the 13 minute mark and watch for a couple of minutes to see my comments on the spiritual but not religious phenomenon.
If you don’t want to watch, you don’t have to miss out. Let me tell you why I think so many people are calling themselves “Spiritual but not Religious.”
