So now I'm curious what the total congregational expenditures and membership numbers tell us. How much church "do you get" for the money? This goes right to the question of church development.
These are fair, but rarely asked questions when the promoted culture is "give, baby, give." Must you have $2,000 to spare per head to be a Unitarian Universalist? Or more? And what if you think the money is -- frankly -- better used elsewhere?
It'll take me some time to review the numbers.
