What Do Your Friends Think About Your Faith? (August Dialog)

Check out exceprts from a recent Christianity Today article:

     Americans who don't go to church are happy to talk about religion and often think about the meaning of life. They're open to taking part in community service events hosted at a church or going to a church concert.
     But only about a third say they'd go to a worship service, if invited by a friend. Few think about what happens after they die.
      Those are among the findings of a new online survey of 2,000 unchurched Americans from LifeWay Research and the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism....
     More than half of Americans who don't regularly go to church identify as Christians. They are mostly indifferent to organized religion, said LifeWay executive director Scott McConnell.
      "Unchurched Americans aren't hostile to faith," he said. "They just don't think church is for them."
     But even though they aren't interested in church, few of the unchurched are turned off by conversations about faith, said McConnell.

Look for implications on how churches can plan, program and provide training to help church members reach their unchurched friends!
