Good article,Sam.Gets folks thinking and asking questions. That's good.We've got to watch ourselves as a denomination becoming too luke-warm concerning our faith and trust in Jesus.We've done a lot of "reimagining" but we really need to get back to basic fire and energy for our Savior.Our dilemma of decreasing numbers is,as you know, being experienced by other "main stream" Protestant denominations. We're also on a fast track of dumbing down our services and unfortunately our great Presbyterian church choir reputation.There's wonderful,genius inspired music that is fading away from our services. Too many services are now infected with too much "Top-Forty", over amplified "fluff".Pray for another Great Enlightenment, real soon! God Bless!
