THEME: The Struggles, Concerns and Fears around Finding a Higher Power


Dr. Dawn Obrecht - Medical Doctor, Addictionist, Professor and the author of “Who's Your Higher Power: Finding a God of Your Own Understanding”


A new Harris Poll finds that while a strong majority (74%) of U.S. adults do believe in God, this belief is in decline when compared to previous years as just over four in five (82%) expressed a belief in God. Also, while majorities also believe in miracles, heaven, that Jesus is God or the Son of God, the resurrection of Jesus Christ the survival of the soul after death, the devil, hell and the Virgin birth these are all down from previous Harris Polls. Yet, a recent Pew Forum Survey on Religion in America detailed Americans' deep and broad religiosity, finding that 92 percent believe in either God or a universal spirit -- including one in five of those who call themselves atheists. More than half of Americans polled pray at least once a day. What are some of the current day struggles, concerns and fears around Americans believing in or finding a higher power?
