New today from the Century:

  • Tom Long on male church attendance: "Men and the church are often at odds. Sadly, many of the reasons
    researchers give for this are as insulting as they are misguided."
  • Deb Bendis talks to Shane Claiborne about Occupy Wall Street: "Occupy Wall Street may not come up with solutions, but at
    least it is asking the right questions in a nonviolent setting. I don't believe
    that love can be forced, but I believe it can be provoked."
  • David Heim considers mainline demographics: "Data about aging mainliners concentrate the mind. And foster desperate searches for the elusive
    magical formula that will reach young adults."
  • Lil Copan on artwork by Claire Rosean, which "packs a psychological wallop that leaves viewers confused and uneasy." (subscription required)
