Since 2016 began, ReadTheSpirit magazine has been reporting on the remarkable findings of the new Pew study on religion in America. Yes, it’s true: the so-called “Nones”—men and women who decline to name a religious affiliation when asked by pollsters—are a growing minority in America. They now account for 23 percent of the adult population, up from 16 percent in 2007.
But the surprise in this Pew report is the deepening of many common religious practices—including prayer and Bible reading—among Americans coast to coast, especially men and women who are connected with congregations. This is very good news for people who care about organized religion.
