Blue State Christians Pursue a Personal Moral Code

Mainline Protestants are increasingly turning to small groups for moral guidance on personal ethical matters. From my own experience I can say that the small group process is a much healthier approach to developing a mature approach to personal ethics than simply soaking in another dry sermon on Sunday. From the Christian Science Monitor:

Often, this thirst for a personal code of conduct is being satisfied among lay members themselves, who gather in small groups in homes, cafes, and church basements to talk over daily moral challenges.

What's new is that it's appearing in "blue state," liberal-leaning churches, which appear to be taking a page from the playbook of conservative megachurches that have long used small groups to reinforce Christian morality - and to help members feel connected and satisfied.

Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
such as you wrote the book in it or something.
I feel that you simply can do with a few percent
to power the message house a little bit, but other
than that, that is great blog. An excellent read.
I'll definitely be back.
