Searching For Morals And Meaning Within A Secular Framework

The percentage of “nones” -- people not affiliated or involved with any organized -- faith continues to grow in the U.S. 

Writer Katherine Ozment is one of them, and was faced with 2 questions: What do I tell my kids when they ask “what are we?”, and how do I bring what I see as the most positive aspects of religion-a sense of service, community, and deeper meaning-into a non-religious house? She tackles both questions head on in her new book Grace Without God: The Search for Meaning, Purpose, and Belonging in a Secular Age

Ozment joins us to talk about what she found during her research.
