Connecting Faith 8-3-18 | Greg Smith from Pew Research on Why We Go to Church | Rachel Marie Stone on Birthing Hope
Why do you go to church? Or, why do you not go to church? Greg Smith, Associate Director of the Pew Research Center, discussed the latest research about the variety of reasons people do – or do not – go to church. For a good discussion about the low-tech reason to attend church, listen to Carmen’s interview with Craig Detweiler here.
Rachel Marie Stone talked about her new book Birthing Hope: Giving Fear to the Light. Across cultures, birth is a great leveler, and a profound demonstration of hope amidst fear, pain and chaos. Rachel’s writing about food, faith, justice, public health, and maternal health has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Christianity Today, Religion News Service, and more.
