Well, not really; but sometimes—like Angela Denker—I miss the churches of the 50’s with their large attendance and elaborate youth programs. I have fond memories of Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. And I enjoyed winning Bible verse memorization contests and singing Baptist hymns like “Holy, Holy, Holy.”
Angela Denker, in a recent article, analyzes the good and bad points of these churches, which have remnants in the Christian Nationalism of today. I heartily recommend her article, which you may find HERE.
