Notable Quotes


"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.
