All this week, The Takeaway has been exploring America's changing religious landscape in our series "Young Nation Under God?" But America is still a deeply religious country. Although 1 in 4 millennials claim no religious affiliation, 84 percent of all Americans still identify with an organized religion.

What is behind this change between the generations? And what does it mean for America's future?

We discuss these big questions with Krista Tippett, the host of On Being, a radio show that explores religion and spirituality in our daily life.

She helps us tie together all the stories we've been hearing this week on young people and religion, from young Jews, Muslim-Americans, and atheists. And she explains why she believes the growing number of "unaffiliated" millennials could be the source for renewing America's religious traditions.
