The following website, Pastoral Care Inc., provides heartbreaking statistics regarding the life and health of the church today. As one who has been there and done that for half a century, I am concerned for those who are struggling to serve God's people during a time when bi-vocational ministry is becoming nearly impossible and many established churches are facing financial and social distress due to the pandemic and threats to their freedom of expression. Please go to this link and read for yourself what is breaking my heart and then pray for your pastor(s) and your church. Return to my website often as I seek to address these issues.
