For some time now I have been concerned and interested in the lack of giving our churches in the United States experience. It started when I read the book, Passing the Plate: Why Christians Don’t Give Away More Money by Christian Smith, Michael O. Emerson & Patricia Snell. Just recently I came across the graphic view of church giving below.
How much do you give to the work of God? What keeps you from giving more? Do you know what the breakdown is in your church?
