Item Description...
Overview
The United Methodist Church (USA) has lost more than 3.3 million members. The Presbyterian Church (USA) has lost more than 2.3 million members since 1971. The Episcopal Church (USA) has lost more than 1.1 million members. The Evangelical Lutheran Church (USA) has lost more than 540,000 members, including a loss of 61,871 members between 2001-2002. Forty-five churches closed their doors in 2002. The majority of North American Protestant congregations and denominations, says Hamman, have experienced significant losses since the 1960s. Moreover, the dynamic and growing churches that are changing their traditions experience the loss of what was familiar to them. In many churches, losses past and present remain unnamed and unmourned.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Grief Will Set You Free  Sep 14, 2009
One of the phenomena that is observed within denominational churches today is sadness. Jaco Hamman, a professor at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, Michigan, reveals that many within older churches (older both in terms of their history and the average age of members) are grieving loss. What has been lost are many of the characteristics of mainline congregations in the glory days of the 50's and early 60's. The end result is that churches get stuck and end up yearning for the past. Hamman provides tools for church leaders to help congregations grieve in constructive ways and free them to live fruitfully in the present.
