A snippet from Wakefield Christmas.
At the theologian’s table.
On church growth.
“You know where this all got started–when churches decided to take down that ‘attendance today’ sign.
When we remodeled the church in —- somehow that sign got misplaced. People are lookin’ all over for that sign. I got asked ‘where’d that sign go?’
‘I dunno. Must’ve gotten lost,’ I says.
You know where that sign was? In my garage.
(Then Grandad sat back in his chair. A smug little smirk across his face.)
