From a recent Globe and Mail article,
What attracts native-born Canadians to church these days, says religion sociologist David Seljak of St. Jerome’s University in Waterloo, Ont., is the availability of parking, quality of preaching and children’s programs, in that order.
I object! I know from direct anecdotal evidence that children’s programs ranks higher in drawing attendance than quality of preaching. As a minister of the Gospel I am deeply offended by this accusation.
