RNS-Salkin-Oped: God save the boomers!
(RNS) - Grove United Methodist Church, a congregation of mostly 60- and 70-somethings in a St. Paul suburb, will close this summer, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. The church needs a "reset," the pastor said, and when it reopens in November, it will be focused on attracting new — and younger — people. I can certainly understand the need to attract younger families. But, let's make sure there will always be room for every generation within those hallowed walls. By Jeffrey Salkin. 782 words.
