How true yet how sad. Denominationally we continue on our merry way, “fiddling while Rome burns,” either ignoring or oblivious to such critical statistical fact. Instead of intelligently taking such information to heart and strategically adjusting our strategies to meet these obvious challenges we proceed to endeavor to “retread” our aging, sagging congregations where numbers and dollars are a diminishing resource.
Is it any wonder that our problems persist or that we continue on our downward slide?
