Beyond Tolerance:

Linda Mercadante

Belief without Borders


November 6th , 7:00pm


Sill Board Room

The last twenty years have seen a dramatic increase in "nones": people who do not claim anyreligious affiliation, and who now outnumber even the largest Protestant denominations in America. Not to be confused with secularists, many nones identify themselves as "spiritual but not religious" (SBNR). Public response to the emergence of SBNRs has been wildly mixed. Nones have been evaluated, statistically analyzed, classified and categorized, derided as shallow dilettantes, and hailed as spiritual pioneers, but very rarely asked to describe their own views and experiences. In Beliefs without Borders, theologian and one-time SBNR Linda Mercadante gives nones a chance to speak for themselves.

There will also be two more opportunities to hear Linda Mercadante speak at the Stone Church of the Brethren

November 7th at 7:30 Pm

November 8th at 9:30 Am
