While equating religious affiliation with language has some helpful parallels, I believe that religious connection is more fluid. While one's language is deeply connected with brain development, family structure, environment and communication, religious life can be changed rather easily throughout life.

I, too, see a large number of people making that fluid choice more often in the last two generations. What will happen in the future isn't clear, but I have confidence that the search for and experience of God will continue, whether it's in the form we have known for the last few generations or not.
