This might be a bad sign:
Yesterday I attended the 9 am service at one of the largest churches in the KC metro area. There were perhaps 2,000 people in attendance. The demographics might have been a little skewed -- not a perfect representation of KC's population. But it was a diverse group nonetheless: a little more than half black, 30 or 40 percent white and the rest Hispanic and Asian. I'd say they were mostly middle class, with some very poor people mixed in, and probably a few you could classify as very rich.
Anyway, midway through the service the pastor asked who had read an article in Saturday's Star which quoted a couple of the church's pastors.
Three people raised their hands.
Out of 2,000.
