Some religiously unaffiliated Americans are now looking to J. K. Rowling’s fictional Harry Potter series as a source of spiritual comfort and guidance. Earlier this week, hundreds attended a conference in Washington, D.C., hosted by two Harvard Divinity School graduates, who host a podcast called “Harry Potter and the Sacred Text.” Judging by comments from some of the attendees, it seems like the event was more of a secular tent revival.

“I feel like I’m born again,” one said.

According to the Washington Post, the podcast has “inspired face-to-face Potter text reading groups, akin to Bible study more than book club, in cities across the country.” At Harvard, the hosts lead “a weekly church-like service for the secular focused on a Potter text’s meaning.” Unsurprisingly, given that Millennials are less religious than older generations, the podcast and reading groups have primarily attracted younger Americans.
