Researcher Ed Stetzer points out new data from Gallup polling that shows New Hampshire in second place as the least religious state in our country. The top four are all New England states: Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Maine. Ed says:
New Hampshire is hard soil for the evangelism vineyard work. But when it produces fruit, the results are sweet and long-lasting. The evangelical churches know this and are pouring resources into evangelism and church planting right around us. The people of New Hampshire will hear the Good News, but will they be hearing it from the Episcopal Church? Will we also pour our resources in as a first priority? Will we match their energy for church planting? The next generation will surely let us know.
