Four Mega-Trends Reshaping the Religious Landscape

Four major changes in the way Americans worship may be changing the way we think about and embody faith. Using research findings from 14,000 congregations in 2000, David Roozen shows America’s expanding religious diversity has increased pluralism both across and within religious groups. This contributes to an environment that is more conducive to the expressive, subjective, spiritual side of religion than the cognitive, objective, word-oriented side. As a consequence, faith communities are discovering or recovering worship as the central purpose and act of the community, displacing mission. Researcher Roozen expands upon the implications of these megatrends for religion in America on the website of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research.
