A Conversation on What We Believe

A new report is offering revealing insights into what Americans believe, and how and where they worship.   It turns out that for a growing number of people, there is no one clear-cut answer, but rather a mix of elements and experiences that defy traditional labels. 35 percent of Americans say they attend religious services at more than one place, and 49 percent report having a “religious or mystical experience… a spiritual awakening.”

Below are some of the questions from the Pew poll.  Take a read, leave a comment if you wish:

Would you say that you have ever had a 'religious or mystical experience' — that is, a moment of sudden religious insight or awakening?

Do you believe in reincarnation, that people will be reborn
in this world again and again?

Do you believe in yoga, not just as exercise, but as a spiritual practice?

Have you ever felt that you were in touch with someone who has already died?
