Carey writes, "Every generation experiences change.

"But sometimes you sense you’re in the midst of truly radical change, the kind that happens only every few centuries. Increasingly, I think we’re in such a moment now.

"Those of us in in Western culture who are over age 30 were born into a culture that could conceivably still be called Christian. Now, as David Kinnaman at the Barna Group has shown, even in America, people who are churchless (having no church affiliation) will soon eclipse the churched.

"In addition, 48% of Millennials (born between 1984-2002) can be called post-Christian in their beliefs, thinking and worldview.

    If for no other reason than that we’re human, I concur with Nieuhof’s ideas about the gathered church. One way or another, the church has been gathered since the time of Jesus. We eat together, talk together, think together, believe together. And together, we support one another as we walk along the road. It’s more effective to live and do the ministry of the church together. We’re social. We’re gregarious. Jesus called others to be together with him. That’s still the case.
