How the Loss of Organized Religion is Harming our Youth

By Pam

Kevin Singer recently wrote an article for Religion Unplugged where he discusses whether spirituality could have anything to do with the mental well-being of our Gen Z population. He shares new research showing a strong connection between religiosity and emotional and mental health well-being.

While the percentage of those questioned who consider themselves religious or spiritual is quite high, the number of those who belong to any kind of religion is low.  Could the loss of meaning and community associated with organized religion be partially responsible for our present mental health crisis? Could organized religion be a key component to our well being? And how can church leaders, help the young recognize the mental health benefits of ongoing faithfulness?
