Tim Chesterton at Tale Spin has posted a most worthwhile survey on his blog. He's asking "non-churchgoing readers" about why they don't go to church.
Now there is a radical concept. Let's not assume what they think and feel and need and want. Let's ask them.
That's what sensible organizations do.
If you are one of my non-churchgoing readers, please go to Tim's blog and consider answering the questions. If you are one of my churchgoing readers, please go to Tim's blog and ponder the answers.
Two final observations:
1. I hope Tim is distributing this survey by other means besides his blog.
2. Why do I always feel I want to call Tim "Father Tim" even though I know he's "not that sort" of Anglican?
