Mainline on the move?

Cathy Lee Grossman of USA Today features the work of Diana Butler Bass in her story on growing mainline parishes in today’s paper. Diana, a member of Epiphany Church in downtown D. C. will be the featured speaker at our diocesan convention in late January. Here latest book is Christianity for the Rest of Us. As Grossman explains:

“Bass set out on a Lilly Foundation grant to find 50 mainline churches rooted in the Gospel, rich in worship, strong in social justice, creative in spirituality and radiating hospitality. Instead, she found 1,000 thriving congregations from California to Virginia.”

The story is worth a read and so is the book.
