“Reclaim Our Moravian Heritage” by Bishop Nicholson

According to what I’ve read “85% of US churches are declining in attendance, while 15% are increasing through transfer growth”. No one would argue with me in United Alaska that the Churches in America and even in Alaska are sick, because our moral foundations are eroding. As a church we’ve experienced so many blessings that our primary values are comfort and blessing and relishing in the past.
