In our commitment to be reasonable, I suggest that the Church in the West has been emasculated. Neutered. Feminized.
Consider this: those most absent from church are men and young adults.
According to David Murrow, they esteem challenge over security. The key values of this missing population include: adventure, risk, daring, independence, variety, and reward.
Women and seniors are more likely to embrace as core values: safety, stability, harmony, predictability, comfort, support, and tradition.
And, here we find the Church in our day.
