Whenever I talk to people about why they like going to church…the reasons I usually get come down to two reasons. (*Katy’s poll is totally anecdotal)
What Church People are actually saying
1. Its a like a family/the relationships, etc.
2. for the kids (although that tends to be a baby boomer reason)
Seldom to I hear (What church people aren’t saying enough of)
1. We are actually helping people
2. The prayer is amazing
3. I feel connected to God
4. Worship is so meaningful
5. We are actively welcoming of all people…..
Pastor Fail? Denominational Fail? Gospel Fail? Church fail? Institutional Fail?
Where is the disconnect… (PS families are great, but to me there is more to it)
