Just when you thought there was no good news to tell… along came Aaron Earls at Lifeway Research with “8 Encouraging Trends in Global Christianity for 2024.” His good news is all about the growth of the Gospel. His research shows that atheism is shrinking, more churches are being planted, fewer people are without access to the Gospel, and more money is being given to Christian causes. (Read his whole article at https://research.lifeway.com/2024/01/22/8-encouraging-trends-in-global-christianity-for-2024/.). In the midst of a troubled world, there are still positive signs.
