RADIOWEST talking Millennials and Mormonism. Pretty interesting. LISTEN HERE!
Especially if you pair their podcast with THIS STUDY.
And this article.
Now, more about the podcast.
Religion scholar Jana Riess has been studying what she calls “The Next Mormons,” and while nearly all say they believe in God, the way they practice their religion is very different from older generations. And like other faiths around the country, the LDS Church is experiencing its share of young adults leaving the fold. We’ll talk with Riess and others about this generational shift, and what it means for Mormonism.
- Jana Riess is a religion scholar and senior columnist for Religion News Service. She’s the author of Mormonism for Dummies [Indie bookstores|Amazon] and Flunking Sainthood: A Year of Breaking the Sabbath, Forgetting to Pray, and Still Loving My Neighbor [Indie bookstores|Amazon]. Her forthcoming book on Millennials is called The Next Mormons.
- Rosemary Card is an active Mormon, the founder of Q.Noor, a company that creates LDS Temple and Baptism Dresses for young Mormons. She has recently become a contributor to LDS Living.
- Tanner Gilliland has resigned from the LDS Church. With Samantha Shelley and Connor Snyder, he is co-creator of Zelph on the Shelf, a blog, YouTube channel, and podcast for post-Mormons.
