Spiritual But Not Religious – Are Millennials Missing the Plot?

July 23, 2017, in Videos > Social Discourse, by

BahaiTeachings.org Editor-in-Chief, Payam Zamani interviews an author, an activist and actor Justin Baldoni — to find out why so many reject religion but embrace spirituality.

Payam wanted to know why 72% of millennials consider themselves “spiritual, but not religious” — so he asked an African educational activist, a celebrity actor/producer and an author. All from different walks of life, these three offer frank and honest answers. “Isn’t religion,” one of the panelists said, “only for people who can’t think for themselves?” Join Payam as they explore this big social trend and try to answer the penetrating questions it raises for our future.
