In 1961 a new Progressive Baptist Convention was formed because it promoted those who were actively engaged in the American Civil RIghts movement. Today a new schism is happening and it is one that creating just as much fuss as the Baptist schism of 1961. Across the country, blacks are leaving the comfort of religious experiences through the church for authentic quests for meaning and spirituality. This is more evident in the Millenials generation (those 25 years of age and younger). This group is actually engaging a more radicalized identity as blacks and non-church members They are calling for more social justice and less institutionalized religious expression. How should the older church deal with them? Is there a need for blacks to forge new paths in religious and spiriual expression? Do we need that "Ole Time Religion" that was good for mama and papa and should be good enough for us? Join Pastor Neal for this and other lively topics on Zera Today.
