I don't believe the number of believers has changed
much since I was a kid in the 1950s.
I do believe that the number of people who feel
socially obligated to go to church has dropped
With so few attendees today a good church is a busy
The Anglican church I have started attending has a
free lunch for the hungry every Sunday. Parishioners
take turns cooking, serving and cleaning up.
The churches in the area all take turns providing free
breakfasts for the homeless every day of the year.
They collect food donations every week
and the group that I am going to join makes up
packages of ingredients that make a wholesome,
filling meal, (recipe included) for the local food bank.
No proselytizing, mo judging, no one is turned away.
They just get up early and do it.
I have my issues with the Christian church but this
isn't one of them.
