Around the Web – May 11, 2012

This week, we found an interesting chart on why pastors and churches are heading toward conflict that often results in pastoral dismissal: “Pastor’s Fight and Flight”. Top two reasons: ‘recent church fights and shrinking congregations’… the next six:

  1. Short Sermons (seriously!)
  2. Almost no men in attendance
  3. Women pastors
  4. Young pastors
  5. Old congregants
  6. A slight majority of congregants are poor

Hard to know what to make of all that! Those of us who preach 45 minutes or more are safe, right?

A few more articles of note:

As always, there will be more to come.
