[336] Blacks’ Spiritual Practice

Christiannewsnow.com recently reported a study from Pew Research on race and spiritual practice. Here are a few findings.

Blacks attend church more often than Americans overall.

Blacks pray more frequently.

Of blacks, 66% are Protestant, 6% Catholic, 3% other, and 21% unaffiliated.

Blacks favor racially diverse churches.

Among blacks, there is a concern about not being “as bold and courageous as we used to be,” with respect to social evils.

So what can we conclude from all this? Black people are a spiritual population. The worship and pray more than the average American. They are particularly holistic in their faith. It is not just a vertical (relationship with God) phenomenon. It is horizontal as well, with a call to be prophetic to the society of which it is a part. DC
