America’s faithful are restless

Is it time to move on? America’s faithful are restless, writes Cathy Lynn Grossman in USA Today. Many are “switching from church to church, powered by a mix of dissatisfaction and yearning,” she writes. More than half – 58 percent – of those who changed their house of worship without making a residential move, told her that “their old church failed to engage their faith, or put their talents to work, or it seemed hypocritical or judgmental.” Forty-two percent of the people say they switched because another church offered more appealing doctrines and preaching or the preacher and church members’ faith seemed more “authentic.” More than half (54%) of switchers changed denominations as well. Only 44 percent said the denomination was an important factor in choosing a new church.
