josh c sent this article to me earlier today. it’s an interesting review of a book on megachurches. my favorite quote from the article is:
“after a week of working in a major corporation, shopping in a food warehouse and megamall, viewing movies at a multiplex theater, and having children who attend a regional high school, it seems incongruous that this family would feel comfortable in a forty-person church,” wrote the authors. “so the force of cultural conditioning is on the side of megachurches.”
megachurches aren’t really my thing (said the guy who is youth minister at a church that ran 1,800 in average weekly attendance awhile back) but they are for some people and i’m glad they are there for them (i guess).
