Church Funding

The Times of London talks about the financial crisis in the Church of England. According to their figures, the biggest single expense – 4 times larger than the second largest – is clergy pensions.

I understand the idea of taking care of retired clergy. But that’s not the mission of the church. Some how, they, like us, need to figure out how to move from maintenance to mission. They don’t need just any mission, but they need to figure out how to live the Christian life in such a compelling way they can re-evangelize their country.
