I have always wondered why things like this did not get more criticism in the press? The Catholic Chruch takes much criticism for remaining the same, but what about the changes and drifts with all the splits that happen due to human inistance and willfullness?
**Popular alternative splits from Presbyterian Church
May 20, 2005
LOS ANGELES – An alternative worship service that attracted hundreds of new members to one of the most famous Presbyterian congregations in the nation has split with the national Presbyterian Church after months of dissension over management and worship style.
The service, called Contemporary Urban Experience, attracted some 350 new members to the Hollywood First Presbyterian Church in its 2-1/2-year existence. Until the service started, the church’s membership had been in decline for 20 years.
