Things in Detroit are rough, and church leaders are having to decide how to help their congregations through these difficult times. The New York Times tells their stories.
One churches featured SUVs on their stage during services, and another invited members of the United Auto Workers union to speak. Another changed their church sign to urge passer-bys to come in and hear “God’s bailout plan.”
The real kicker is the archbishop who offered “some pastoral insights and suggestions about how we might prepare to celebrate Christmas this year when economic conditions are so grim.”
SUVs on stage? Another cheesy church sign? Churches needing insight on how to celebrate Christmas without their congregations spending boatloads on gifts?
Looks like even though the economy is tanking, church marketing still sucks.
