This week, Jeremy Beer chats with Ericka Andersen about re-engaging the women saying “no” to religion.
This week on Givers, Doers, & Thinkers, Jeremy speaks with journalist Ericka Andersen about why so many women have stopped attending church and what can be done about the issue.
Ericka is a freelance journalist and the author of a new book titled Reason to Return: Why Women Need the Church and the Church Needs Women. She writes regularly for the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Christianity Today, World, and other outlets. She also has her own podcast called “Worth Your Time.”
Jeremy and Ericka discuss why women are leaving religion at faster rates than men. Ericka shares insights on the connections between spiritual health and loneliness, faith communities and their impact on rebuilding the church, and how a simple invitation can reengage those who have fallen away.
