Churchgoers are often in a better mood, especially following worship services.
As I make my way around the New England Synod, I've now visited over 60 different congregations, I'm intrgued with some of the questions I get asked by people in our congregations. One question that was a little unusual, went this way: "I think christianity needs to hire a Madison Avenue advertising firm. We've got the best product in human history. Our problem is that we don't market it very well. What do you think, Mr. Bishop."
While I am reluctant to reduce the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ to an advertsing campaign, I must say that when I saw the research sited above, I thought to myself, "Well, that's a nice tangible biproduct of being a christian."
What about you? Are you in a better mood after sunday worship?
