It may sound like a broken record for regular readers of our blog posts, but the so-called “Nones”* are a big demographic in our communities. In this blog for the Lewis Center for Church Leadership, friend of Project Thrive Dr. Ryan Burge discusses ways churches can face the reality of disassociation from religion and finding ways to authentically and helpfully engage their neighborhoods.

*”Nones” are persons who self-declare “no religion” on surveys. You can read more about them in Burge’s book The Nones: Where They Came From, Who They Are, and Where They Are Going (Fortress Press)
