Has God Left the Building?
Joined several hundred folks at an advance screening of a movie by Group Publications on the stories and issues behind the decline of the American Church. The comparison to the Kodak Company missing the boat on digital photography was quite telling. There was a long story of an aging Jesus type pastor trying to turn around a church and largely failing. The changes he made brought no one and alienated a good section of the old faithful till they voted him out.
Some good segments on mega churches that pointed out their potential future problems. Overall it was a fairly depressing picture in many places, although my own studies lead me to believe we are shifting for the purpose of recovering the message.
