Kresta in the Afternoon – August 5, 2019 – Hour 1

+  Reactions to the Shootings in El Paso and Dayton

+  The Religious Lives of America's Youth (2 segments)

  • Description: Today's twentysomethings have been labeled the "lost generation" for their presumed inability to identify and lead fulfilling lives, "kidults" for their alleged refusal to "grow up" and accept adult responsibilities, and the "least religious generation" for their purported disinterest in religion and spirituality. These characterizations are not only unflattering -- they are wrong. Tim Clydesdale joins us to discuss what he has learned from his discussions with America's young adults and how they practice spirituality.
