Spiritual But Not Religious - Intensive (SBNR)

Dec 31st 6:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Creating Communities of Spirit: The Spiritual But Not Religious

February 19 - 20, 2018

The number of adults in the U.S. who say they are spiritual, but not religious, has grown rapidly in recent years, up to 27% in 2017.*

Who are the people who make up this group? Why are their numbers growing? What does their spirituality look like? What are their particular challenges, gifts or strengths? What is the nature of the spiritual care needed for those who identify as SBNR? 

Bringing our knowledge and experience together for two full days, we seek to deepen our understanding of those with this spiritual identity. We will explore different forms of ministry that may serve the SBNR and we will consider where SBNR interfaces with social justice, science, and the personal growth movement. Collectively, we will look at where SBNR community is found, or emerging, and envision ways to nurture this part of our communal spiritual landscape.


*According to a Pew Research Center survey conducted between April 25 and June 4 of 2017.
