A two-year research project shows that today’s youth view spirituality as an important part of their lives.
The youth say they’re both spiritual and religious (34 percent) with 23 percent indicating that they’re spiritual but not religious.
They’re most likely to see religion and spirituality positively.
When asked what it means to be spiritual, U.S. youth said it means believing there’s a purpose to life (41 percent) and believing in God (33 percent).
