Saw the following graph on the site of a Dutch newspaper. The trust in institutions was polled, and this is the result. From the top down, you see:
Radio, police, army, written press, judicial system, television, unions, parliament, government, political parties, church. The number indicates the percentage of Dutch people that trust these institutions.
No idea what the graph would look like in the USA, but if the church scored similarly low there as well, what can we do to restore this trust? For this low number seems to me to be an obvious hindrance to the proclamation of the gospel.
