Daniel Levine: Religion is adapting to new trends
The trends expert is seeing a rising number of modern ideas in a traditional setting
“New ideas are creeping into different faiths,” says trends expert Daniel Levine. “A surprising number of faiths are embracing different ways of practice.”
Fresh life has been breathed into Catholicism, as the more down to Earth, easy-going Pope Francis has put a modern spin on the most traditional of positions. Other denominations of Christianity are experiencing a boom in sprawling, extremely modern mega-churches that seat tens of thousands of people.
Islam is also seeing a surge in modernity. Mosques in the Middle East, especially the United Arab Emirates, are upgrading their mosques. These places of worship are offering QR codes that provide information on lectures, sermons, and prayer schedules. And a newly-built mosque in Dubai is going green, seeking to be the first of its kind to be certified by the Green Building Council.
“These developments show that religion is not as stodgy and conservative as it is sometimes perceived to be,” says Daniel Levine. “While religious messages and teachings are steeped in tradition, faiths can adapt and change to fit their surroundings.”
