I read the article because I was interested in the subject line but came away feeling like I had read a commercial selling a church that is in the entertainment business, but about Christian religions. I didn't learn anything! Could be my fault and that I missed the message but that's my comment about this article.

The LDS Church was not mentioned. It has not changed its worship services to accommodate things such as the "newer" forms of Christian Music and it did not see falling numbers in missionary service when the age requirement was lowered recently. Try as a young person to get into one of the three BYUs of today? >> A lot harder that a couple of decades ago. Not that the requirements are much higher, it's the Sheer Number of people who Want to be there.

If the message is good and rich, the numbers will still be there, especially if there's a sense of "inclusion" and "responsibilities" such as in Callings.

Lord Bless the Churches, All of them!!
