I've been doing a lot of things other than homework these days. Read the Hunger Games. Knit cute baby clothes. And mapped out the church deserts in Austin, TX.
That last one is the result of what happens when a would-be cartographer/demographer goes to seminary.
Here's the PC(USA) church desert map I created:

Anyone else notice how dense the churches are in
My map is by no means scientific. I just put some blue shading in neighborhoods which have a high density of minority communities without a PC(USA) church.
The PC(USA) has more money per capita than any other denomination in the U.S. What if we used those resources to plant churches/community programs in neighborhoods that could use some Presbylove?
Now, who wants to convince the Presbytery to devote some funds for this church development plan?
