Notable Quotes


"Lately I’ve been wondering if a little death and resurrection is exactly what the American church needs. What if all this talk of waning numbers and shrinking influence means our empire-building days are over and it’s a good thing? As the religious landscape in the U.S. changes, Christians are going to have to learn to measure our success by something other than money and power.


– Popular blogger Rachel Held Evans in an interview with Jonathan Merritt of Religion News Service


"So what does the physical church offer that the Internet can’t? You can’t take communion online. You can’t physically serve others together online. You can post your #ashtag picture, but you can’t have those ashes administered online. In a virtual age, it will be important for churches to place a renewed emphasis on those tangible, corporal activities as a significant reason to come to church.”


– Roxanne Stone, a vice president at Barna Research Group in an article by Jonathan Merritt of Religion News Service.
