What Happened to Christianity and How Does It Affect Us?

« back to classes page
We are in the midst of one of the most dramatic shifts in religion and consciousness in human history. The psychologist Rollo May says, “We are living at a time when one age is dying and the new age is not yet born.” The Public Religion Research Institute in 2016 discovered that for the first time in United States history the largest faith category involve people who identify their religion as “none.”  Among young adults under 30, “Nones” are nearly 40% of the population. We’ll not focus primarily on the failures of Christianity to address the modern age: the influence of modern science, biblical criticism and social evolution. As we address the religious past, we will learn how to immerse ourselves in the rainbow possibilities of the present. The Christian tradition is either a heavy sack that inhibits spiritual growth or a lively springboard, a launching pad for a shift from theistic forces in the heavens to a radiance of spiritual guidance within. We will use readings, writing assignments, and class discussions to explore relevant spiritual topics.
