Mainline Christian and Jewish Decline not Foreordained

In a November, 2006 blog Rabbi Aaron Spiegel compared mainline Christian decline to that of Judaism. He cited evidence that the difficulty facing mainline Christianity is not so much a matter of a lack of interest in their theological outlook as complacency in how mainline Christian denominations and churches address their faith commitments.  American Judaism, he warns, may be heading down the same path. However there are, he says, congregations in both the mainline Christian and the Jewish tradition that are thriving, and other congregations can learn from them. Spiegel asks, "Is there a Jewish mainline?"
