cloudy translucence

if you need to ask, you shouldn't be here.

i’ll agree with the preacher’s wife on this one.  and the proposal of a non-physical or even mobile church could prove to be a great design challenge/opportunity.

So…does “charity” come in under “missions” or “other”? Looks like a pretty basic business model to me, minus the taxation of course. So why aren’t we taxing these places again?

I was going to say because they’d want official representation in the government. But they pretty much have that now, I suppose.

Half of churches have attendance of fewer than 100 people (average is about 185). Say your budget is under $100K (typical). Is it crazy that a pastor + secretary + organist/musician together make up a little under half of that in salary? 
Also, this chart is a church budget. It’s what’s budgeted for missions, programs, etc. It doesn’t take into account special gifts and offerings for specific missions you might take one Sunday. 
Where should we cut? I’d say facilities. Having a church building anymore is pretty useless. We should be the church in our communities, not the church with the tallest, prettiest steeple.
But anyway, churches aren’t taxed to keep our state/religion separate. It doesn’t always work that way, but it is the goal.
