How should we use attendance statistics?
Here are two posts that just came out today with contrasting views on the use of attendance statistics in church life? Actually, i think both are right and we need to have a healthy view of what numbers actually mean. Dr. Chuck Lawless argues for the use of statistics, with some healthy warnings in “Why Church Numbers Matter.” J.I Packer says that,
“Too Many Churches in North America are Playing the Numbers Game.’ . Hope you will read both and let me know what you think.
