KW360 Digest: July in Review

OriginalDigest

Welcome!

Given the pace of life, it’s likely you missed a post or two the last month. It’s also my hope you would want to read again a favorite recent post. Hence, the KW360 Digest. Pour a fresh cup of your favorite blend, settle in, and enjoy the review. Make sure you catch the bonus links to content for church leaders at the end. 

New Posts

New posts are published on Wednesdays, although there is some flexibility in the schedule.

Conversations about Faith & Life

Each week we publish interactive devotions on Jesus’ life designed to equip God’s people to live out their faith on daily basis.

Top Five Reads

The following links are to content from other authors chosen for church leaders. 

  • Just in case there are any doubts, one’s faith should influence personal political views, not the other way around. 
  • The folks at LifeWay have researched Christians inviting others to their church. Where do you think members of your denomination stack up?
  • According to this study, doctrine is by far the most important variable when it comes to retaining or losing church members. The research speaks especially to Lutherans, Baptists and Methodists.
  • There are all sorts of way congregations go about outreach. Not all are effective. This post helps churches distinguish the difference.
  • We now know 2017 was a record year for charitable donations. Religious organizations received a lion’s share of the gifts. What is not stated here is how sharply the percentage of charitable gifts given to churches has dropped the past 30 years.

Scanning the Horizon

This month we’ll have a mix of posts, dealing with both established churches and new churches.
