My friend Ben Corey posted an interesting blog last week entitled, “Let the Government Shut Down Indefinitely (here’s your chance, Church).” Ben challenges the Church to step up and show that it can provide for the poor, the widow, and the marginalized in our society, during a time when the government no longer can. Check it out Ben’s blog here.
If those who attend church regularly actually gave 10% of their income, there would be somewhere around $48 billion more each year for the the church to use to impact the world (See Passing the Plate: Why American Christians Don’t Give Away More Money by Christian Smith, et al. for more on this).
How awesome would that be?
