Faith after Doubt with Brian D. McLaren

Brian McLaren’s new book: Faith after Doubt: Why Your Beliefs Stopped Working and What to Do about It makes a bold proposal: Only doubt can save the world, and your faith. Sixty-five million adults in the U.S. have dropped out of active religious attendance and about 2.7 million more are leaving every year. Today, old assumptions are being challenged in nearly every area of human life, not just religion and spirituality. But by living constructively with doubt, McLaren says, we can leave behind unnecessary baggage and intensify our commitment to what matters most. “Doubt isn’t the opposite of faith,” he explains. “It is an element of faith.” Join us on Sunday, April 25th from 11:30 am – 12:30pm for a Live Zoom conversation with the author. McLaren uses his own story and the stories of a diverse group of struggling believers to explain how questions and doubt are not the enemy of faith, but rather a portal to a more mature and fruitful kind of faith. He will read from Faith After Doubt followed by dialogue with Rev. Marci Glass.
