Not Much to Say

When this posts, I will likely be eating breakfast, then taking my shower, and getting ready for work. I don’t have a lot to say today. I don’t have a lot of work to do today. I just hope it will be a mostly headache free day, and I can do what I actually need to do at the museum. I need to work on a presentation for an upcoming program I will be doing with a colleague. I think it will be a fun program, but I need to do some prep work for it. Other than that, most of the work I need to do is stuff to get the program organized and ready to go. It’s in a week, so I really need to get going on it. I hope you all have a great week, and good Monday.

Joe, something for you to think and write about today, Roderick

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Americans' membership in houses of worship continued to decline last year, dropping below 50% for the first time in Gallup's eight-decade trend. In 2020, 47% of Americans said they belonged to a church, synagogue or mosque, down from 50% in 2018 and 70% in 1999.

The Sea of Faith
Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore
Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.
But now I only hear
Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,
Retreating, to the breath
Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear
And naked shingles of the world.

Roderick, I recently saw another article about the decline in church, synagogue or mosque membership. Apparently, there is a new book out that says the decline in membership is due to the political conservatism of many churches. I’m planning on writing about that for an upcoming Sunday. It won’t be this Sunday because I’ll do a post about Easter, but hopefully, the next week.
