LABC Update – October 17, 2022
October 16, 2022
Prayers for us all in the week ahead. Yesterday, as I drove through both Oakland and San Jose, I observed busy houses of worship, houses of worship that didn’t seem to have much going on and a whole lot of people busy in activities other than going to church. My observations brought this article to mind.
While I wish more people were going to church, I find it hard to be overly critical of those who are not. I understand that a finger pointed in judgement is not going to bring anyone back to church. Maybe our role as church-goers is less to figure out how to get people back to church, but to learn how to keep faith with, and encourage faith in, those who do not attend.
