It is said that somewhere between 6,000 & 10,000 Christian churches are closing every year. There is no escaping the truth that the institutional church is declining… rapidly, & many are asking, “What does it mean to be a Christian today?”
Last November I had the opportunity to join a group of others in the House of Jacob Synagogue where my friend Rev. Ray Matheson & Rabbi Yisroel Millar debated the question, ‘Is There A Future For Judaism & Christianity in Canada?’ The two of them presented some great arguments both for & against institutional survival. Whether you choose one polarity over the other, we are all going to have to answer how humanity’s spirituality will be practiced in future; institutionally or otherwise.
