Don Miller let it be known recently that he doesn't go to church much. See his confession here. From the comments and responses around the web, you might think he really hit a nerve. At first, it feels like you are in the dentist chair and the drill punctures through the tooth and goes right down into the bone, severing a nerve as the drill progresses. You feel it through your jaw into your brain and right down to the ends of your toes.
And how can we not be similarly affected when we read about dying churches, discouraged pastors, shrinking congregations, and the general lack of morale among evangelical churches?
