A 2013 Harris poll revealed 23% of all Americans classify themselves as ‘nones’; not having any religious affiliation. That percentage is growing and growing most rapidly among young people. Many identify as not religious, but spiritual. In this episode of Challenge 2.0, we’ll visit with one of the founding leaders of Contemplative Outreach, an ecumenical Christian organization seeking to re-invigorate the ancient monastic practice of silent prayer. Father Carl Arico will explore the trend and how the personal faith practice of silent prayer offers a response to disengagement from faith and from each other. 

Air Date: July 22nd 2019 at 7:30 AM on MeTV, carried through cable providers as well as DirectTV and Dish Network.
