March 15 - Rev. Jim Moseley:  The Future of the Church … as we know it

In recent decades, the once strong and outspoken voice of Main Line Protestantism has suffered decline in numbers through loss of membership and in its voice as messenger of meaning and hope. Some wonder if modern day Christendom will survive. Some believe it is at the dawn of a new era of purpose and practice. Some don’t care either way! What might the future look like?

Reverend Jim Moseley is the Executive Presbyter of New Castle Presbytery which serves 53 congregations and connected ministries located in Delaware and on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

RE Topic: Activity with Adam Ginsberg
