Very interesting post from a guest contributer over at Jason Clark’s blog (always worth a read) asking what the church needs to do about the noticeable imbalance between the genders in todays church (there just aren’t that many blokes in churches).
I know that in my experience so much of the comments in the article ring true. We’re peddling a message (if you’ll excuse the crudity of the terminology) of how great it is to be in love with Jesus, and missing the call to action – we’ve lost the adventure that this Christian life is supposed to be. Which is perhaps why we’re seeing the opposite issue in the Emerging church arena (particularly in leadership) – the people who are most disillussioned by the way church is working at the moment, are the people who are getting out there and doing stuff.
Worth thinking about.
