Back To Church Sunday aims to get people back to church on the 24th of September by bribing them with chocolate and a free bookmark. Hmmm. I wonder whether addressing the reasons people leave church in the first place might be as useful, if not slightly more. Then again, these people on 43 Things obviously think going back to church is the thing to do.
Meanwhile Michael Hampson is of the opposite opinion, as he explains in his Guardian piece today. The Church of England is dying and we should form an orderly queue if we want to buy up some of the kneelers. Does he have a good point or are these the bitter rantings of an (ex?) Priest? You decide.
Right. Back to work.
