Gene Veith is a smart guy…I've been reading his blog for a while. Good "Lutheran" fella…he is well-read and always makes intelligent comments about life, faith and culture. Here's his latest post:
A Roman Catholic church in Ireland is attracting large crowds by offering a mass that only lasts 15 minutes. Basically, it cuts out the sermon and everything except a rushed-through Holy Communion.
A church in a tiny Virginia town has gone nudist.
churches are going to do this–change historical practice to better
appeal to culturally-besotted Christians, nonbelievers, and quirky
sub-cultures–what else could they do?
