Our guest this month, Dr. Stephen Lloyd-Moffett, is a Professor of Comparative Religion at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. We are excited to hear his views on certain trends in faith and religion: the shrinkage or growth of various faith denominations and traditions; the significance of the rise of the “nones,” especially among Gen Z and Millennials; and the connection between faith traditions and social justice movements. After some discussion in our last episode about the relevance of religion in today’s society, we decided to expand on some of these issues. We went straight to an expert, and we are so grateful that Professor Lloyd-Moffett is with us today!





Dr. Stephen Lloyd-Moffett is a professor of Comparative Religion at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, occasional columnist for the Tribune, and advocate for religious dialogue. An internationally-known scholar of Religious Studies, Professor Lloyd-Moffett has published academic works on ancient monasticism, modern Greek Christianity, the religious life of Cesar Chavez, communal living, and the spirituality of wine. Over the past two decades, he has given over 500 public talks to local groups to help further our understanding of religion. Professor Lloyd-Moffett is the past recipient of the Cal Poly College of Liberal Arts teaching award and the “Top 20 Under 40” award from the San Luis Obispo Tribune.
