You are here

A hat-tip to boingboing for this chart from the blog of Nancy Pelosi (i.e. Speaker of the US House of Representatives).
  • The blue line represents job losses during the 1990 recession.
  • The red line represents job losses during the 2001 recession.
  • And the green line represents the loss of 3.6 million jobs over the past 13 months.
QUESTION: What impact is this having on your church?

Just to get things started -- here in Lincoln City, we've noticed a drop in giving of somewhere between 10% to 15%. Local businesses have survived this far, I'm told, by maxing out their lines of credit . . . but if things don't get better soon, then we're going to see a wave of closures. And that is when things will get really interesting!
