The Christian Science Monitor has written a thorough piece on church decline, highlighting phenomena that may not surprise long-time readers of the Café; a partial list of those highlights follows: studies show that church attendance is cyclical and current numbers resemble the ’40s, that the faithful are more actively devout than they were in the ’50s & ’60s, the false binary between science and religion, and that the pathways to and expressions of faith remain diverse and plentiful.

As part of the piece, they interviewed a number of believers from different traditions, who share their stories and bear witness to their faith.

You can read the personal narratives, statistical data, and analysis, on the Christian Science Monitor Blog.
