Link Love From The Week

October 19, 2007 by

So I’ve been accumulating some links over the week, and I thought I would go ahead and give you the gift of sharing them. If you’re looking to use up some free time, this should help you out.

The Business of Church
Looking at the church as a multinational corporation, evaluating its success and deciding where to go from here. It smacks of controversy.

Polka Mass
Wow. I have to go here; has anyone ever been involved in this before? Please tell us more.

Churches Use Halo To Spread Word, Raise Eyebrows
Look for our post about the community’s reaction to their future “Kill your friends for Christ” mailers.

Those three articles ought to keep you engaged, at least for a little while. Enjoy!

    Re “Business of Church” since I came out of the corporate world, the numbers were eye-opening. Not sure whether I have much use for his solution to the problem, but it looks like he has made his case that there IS a problem….

    I read Sammy J’s “The Business of Church.” If his statistics are correct, then the religion with the greatest % growth per annum is Islam. Very interesting, the last I checked there wasn’t a lot of angst in that religion about being relevant by adopting the culture. This seems to be true even among the most “moderate” brands of that religion.
