Top 10 Reasons our Kids Leave Church

Jesus and Children

As I troll about the blogging community I continue to find both anecdotal and empirical evidence that the trend toward the business model and the contemporary worship/evangelical style of worship in the churches with a catholic tradition is just not working. This last week I came across a re-blogging of the post below on the Brothers of John the Steadfast site. I wish that there were a way for me to get this information to those making decisions at the highest levels of the liturgical churches, but alas…

The ten reasons our kids leave church are:

10. The Church is “Relevant”
9. They never attended church to begin with
8. They get smart
7. You sent them out unarmed
6. You gave them hand-me-downs
5. Community
4. They found better feelings
3. They got tired of pretending
2. They know the truth
1. They don’t need it

For an explanation of this list please read the full story: Top 10 Reasons our Kids Leave Church.
