Christianity Will Get Smaller for Awhile
Samuel Lloyd, Washington Post
Christianity in Europe and North America is going through its biggest period of institutional redefinition in 500 years, and no one knows where it is headed.
Christianity faces are an increasingly pluralistic world, one more saturated by the day with information, choices and entertainment. The world seems too busy for church life. For nearly 1600 years, churches provided the spiritual infrastructure for neighborhoods and larger communities, but now the stones are cracking and the pews are emptying.
