Barna Says to Pack Your Bags

According to some reviews of George Barna’s latest offering, Revolution, the church is in for some major changes in the next 20-30 years. Whereas 70% of Americans primary spiritual experience and expression is currently found in the church, this number will shrink to 30$ by 2025. That’s not a direct quote from the book, so don’t hold to that as doctrine, unlike the rest of Barna’s findings :) . Yet I would have to say that God is up to something, calling people to gather in new ways and opening up possibilities for him to exhibit greater influence in the church. While the opportunities are great, the threats are also great and must be faced. If anything, we will need more faith than ever as we gather together and seek God.
