has the falling economy landed at your house yet?

>> February 24, 2009



Seems like none of us can escape the grim news about our economy reported on the news, on the web, on the radio,...everywhere. Some churches are struggling too---laying off employees and or not being able to hire the people they need.

All of the employees in my PH's area conference are getting a 5% paycut and their continuing education budget has been cut altogether (no Catalyst West for us).

Has the failing economy hit close to home for you already? Has your church been affected?

feeling the crunch, but opening our pocketbooks in faith, believing that God does own the cattle on a thousand hills! We are gonna be risky in our love and our giving-knowing that right now, the CHURCH needs to step up. It's not the gov't's job to take care of people. It's our PRIVILEGE!

Yeah, in Florida other things have been cut. We used to have two ministerial retreats per year. Now it's just one. Also camp meeting is basically just a long weekend now instead of a week. I'm sure there are other things, but those are the most obvious. It's affecting everyone.
