And in part 3 “Large ships trade flexibility for efficiency. The same is true for megachurches. One example occurred in 2005 when Christmas fell on a Sunday. Large churches across the country announced they would not have Sunday worship services on Christmas Day while most smaller churches remained opened.”
Interesting thoughts as a trend in churches seems to toward smaller congregations with simpler program structures.
Everything old is new again.
