Just as the earth consistently spins on its axis, the world, including everything and everyone in it, steadily changes. Religion is too often a debate, but even more often, a question. Many families have come away from organized religion these days; however, surveys have shown that 56% of adults still consider religion to be a very important part of their lives. Another 82% feel that religion plays at least some kind of role for them.

There are an unending number of diverse congregations throughout the world, each one providing some type of stability and direction for its members. The percentage of people who steadily attend a weekly church service has consistently remained at 37% over time. Most of these say that a sunday worship gathering is their preferred service to attend.
