    There seems to be a consistent them in many of these articles with “financial health”. In this particular article, you mention it in the context of multi site churches are healthier financially than a single site church. I guess what I am trying to get at is…does it really matter? How do you define financial health of a Church anyways? Do they make some kind of profit? I’ve seen “financially healthy” churches boast a stage show that would put some music venues to shame. My point is that how many people are missing meals to pay for those lights? How many parents are on free or reduced public school lunches because of the desire to make the church more “attractive”? I must admit that our desire to have “healthy” churches does not reflect the reality of the “unhealthy” world that we live in. Let’s face it, too…most of the multi-site churches are in white suburbia, right? Seems to be a theme.
