Well, I am going to set out tomororw for yet another church to visit. Believe me, it will take a lot for me to go, as going alone to churches is such torture. I sure wish I had a friend who wanted to be adventurous too. But everyone I know either has a church or doesn't want to visit others. It sure is tempting to stay home but I will force myself to go as I really do need a church. So that brings me to the quote below. Maybe this is the problem, or at least one of the problems, especially in the larger urban/large surburban
in area that where I live--Los Angeles County.
The small neighborhood church has given way to the large commuter church. The friendly country parson has been replaced by the suburban CEO/pastor. Older practices such as the "family altar" and the "family pew" have received token attention while new programs have been devised that divide families and segregate the ages. In many ways we have become too clever for our own good.
