Note to My Readers: from mid-June to mid-August (6/18 - 8/20), I will be taking a summer break from posting new articles for my Thursday and Friday slots. This will only affect my Thursday series on the global growth of Christianity, and my Friday series, the "Theological Bestiary" of birds, both of which will resume in late August. During the summer, I'll be dusting off some of my best essays from the first few years of this blog (a decade ago), as well as my verse play "Thus Ends the World," and re-posting them in the Thursday and Friday slots. All other weekdays will continue to feature new material throughout the summer.

Five Haikus on the Pew Research Poll

Christians in decline
That's what the numbers tell us
Numbers never lie

Did Jesus expect
We would be majority
Or simply faithful?

Numbers never lie
But it's not about numbers
And it never was

We're not called to win
We are called to faithfulness
Just to follow Him

So follow thou Christ
And let Him handle the rest
It's God's reign, not ours
