Bombarded with poll results about declining levels of church attendance and belief in God, we assume that more and more people are abandoning faith and making their own meaning. But what these polls fail to report is that the marketplace in replacement religion is booming—and we’ve got the anxiety to prove it, even those of us who call Jesus our lord and savior. Join us as we take a fresh look at the burgeoning phenomenon of ‘seculosity’ and a few of the fresh opportunities facing believers in the midst of it, especially in the wake of the pandemic. The aim will be to bring us a fresh appreciation for the grace of God in all its countercultural wonder.
