Empty seats...

Since 2001, Sunday worship attendance in mainline faiths and Catholicism has seen a steady decline. The only deviation is churches that attract 1,000 or
more on Sunday mornings.

Trends include people coming to church less frequently, an aging church population, and a growing lack of interest in religion. The group that has grown the fastest are those who never attend church. Findings of the survey indicate an "erosion of vitality" in many congregations.

Note: My own question is how to make one of the world's most engaging subjects so utterly lifeless.
