And the word was … confusing

I was chatting with an acquaintance over lunch in downtown Troy the other day and one of the topics we touched on was church attendance.

We noted that because of population shifts many parochial schools are losing students and closing their doors. We also noted that church attendance in general is down and many neighborhood churches have been merged and many buildings shuttered.

We know lots of churches are trying to become more relevant in a pop culture world that values hip slang and wise-ass images as more important than anything else. But that can be taken too far.

Think not? Take a look at these photos of actual church messages we’re seeing these days.
