Allow me to paint in black and white for a brief moment; why are there so few Christians living in working class suburbs?
Perhaps there are and I because I'm new here I don't know them. Perhaps I should say, why are there so few Christians from my kind of church circles...
I'm not trying to incite guilt or have a big rant. I'm genuinely wondering. I was thinking just the other day how in practical terms living somewhere which is more affordable, family friendly etc would seem to be ideal for many christian families.
Leaving aside any issues of prejudice, I wonder if one aspect is that generally christians are encouraged to live near their church so they can be part of the local community. That's great... but it kinda perpetuates the status quo. So what do you reckon? Whether you live in Sydney, Hobart or wherever, how would you feel about moving to a working class suburb with a view to the future church that could be there?
