Let's get serious about what a church really is, K?

Go and read this post over at Kamp Krusty... pretty insightful stuff, and a lot of what I've been seriously pondering over the past number of years.

I think American churches will spend, oh, $30 billion plus this year on staff and buildings. Apparently that's somebody's issue.

For every dollar donated to churches in America, 85 cents goes to pay for "internal" spending, for congregational operations. That means at least 85% goes to something that trumps help for, say, the poverty-stricken. So yeah, that stuff is certainly a big priority, but not so much for me, at this point in my life.

Just a sample of what you'll find there.
