The “religiously unaffiliated” are now the third largest spiritual group in the world at 16% (Pew Research).

Many people within and without identifiable religious organizations describe themselves as Spiritual But Not Religious, however, when asked to explain what SBNR means, some quickly respond in terms of what they are not – not interested in religious institutions, not members of a church, synagogue or mosque; not content to accept creeds, rituals or doctrines without question. Many struggle to articulate what it means to be SBNR and even more are seeking opportunities to share their experience and questions.

The SBNR program will be a gathering for those who wish to explore personal spiritual gifts within an open, engaging community. This event will provide an opportunity for reflective conversation as we unpack terms weighed down by unexamined baggage. In a respectful and safe environment, time will be given for personal discernment and storytelling. We will examine the life-giving concepts and practices that are common within and beyond religious traditions.
