…falling from faith happens slowly and imperceptibly.

Rev. William M. Cwirla has written a blog post that really resonated with me.  You should read it too (On the Death of Steve Jobs).

At my congregation, Trinity, Creston Iowa we are currently seeing a huge drop off in worship and Sunday school attendance among the young.  Many folks in the congregation think that there are no young people, but that isn’t the case.  They aren’t in church.  They’re parents aren’t in church.  Rev. Cwirla’s blog post was about falling away from faith.  It was written in response to the death of Steve Jobs.  Steve was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod.  Later in life he apparently dabbled in Buddhism and the like.  The post isn’t so much about Mr. Jobs as it is about the danger of falling away from faith.  How it happens not “with a shaking fist” but quietly, without notice.
