Q&A after the film

A film about preachers who are not believers and what atheists do when they miss church. This is the strange dilemma of a hidden segment of our population, a group with a secret they dare not tell lest they lose everything. They are clergy who no longer believe in God. They are trapped in a social shift that is rapidly changing our world. Losing Our Religion takes a candid look inside an upheaval in our society. The extreme personal cost to those trapped in the clergy reflects the larger move in our western world as they grapple with how to re-shape their lives, rebuild community, and answer the big question – what’s next?
