The Coming Death of Denominations?

George Bullard on the coming death of national denominations…

While its death has been forecasted for years, now, I don’t believe this will be true for the United Methodist Church, that I’m part of. I see signs of hope because there are people who get it, who are working to start new churches.

Don’t get me wrong, 30 years from now the United Methodist Church will look much different than it does currently, after a severe time of pruning. It will be much smaller but thriving again by that time.

So, I’m optimistic that there will be new life, but this is a good warning…
