A friend forwarded me an article about changes in society — especially businesses — in light of COVID-19. I encourage you to read the article. It talked about changes in restaurants, malls, retail, etc. It talked about large chains versus mom-and-pop stores. It talked about urban, suburban, and rural circumstances.

And my friend asked me — how do you think this relates to the church?

Wow, what a great question.

I think the trends talked about in the article apply to the church as well. Or at least parts of the church in the US…
