Does Religion Have a Future?
Religion has had a profound impact both positively and negatively on human history. Today in the 21st century people's relationship with religion is undertaking some profound changes as a result of our increasing Globalization. In Europe, organized religion and its influence has declined rapidly in the last 50 years. Today, in the U.S. mainline Protestant and Catholic religion are also in decline, yet some religious groups are growing rapidly here and Christianity is growing rapidly in Africa, India, China, and other parts of South East Asia. How does globalization affect religion, what does the Religion of the future look like and what does this mean specifically for Unitarian Universalism here in the United States. These and other questions will be explored in this worship service.
