 In In the News

Dr. Josh Packard, executive director of Springtide Research Institute, participated in a Minnesota Public Radio news feature that discussed the increasing lack of association or involvement in organized religion in the United States, and especially as this pertains to young people. Packard described the trend as part of a growing loss of trust in large institutions. Packard was one of four persons interviewed for the segment of MPR News with Angela Davis, Oct. 24, 2019. This is an edited portion of that conversation.
