You may have heard about the “U.S. Religious Landscape Survey” published last week by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life. It presents findings based on interviews of 35,000 residents of the U.S.
The United Methodist News Service recently published an overview of the survey and asked me to comment. In part, I reply:
"In the mid-20th century, we thought it was a pretty good thing for Christians to learn to talk with one another, and that was the ecumenical movement. Now we assume that Christians should talk with one another, and God is saying that the conversation should be even larger."
I hope you readmy comments in the context of the entire
article, andI look forward to your thoughts on what should be a continuing conversation.
