Stepping Away From the Church as Corporation

Jim Hinch, a religion correspondent for The Orange Country Register, has a piece in The American Scholar looking at the decline of evangelical megachurches, and what has been popping up in their place: pockets of Christians who are gathering and meet in homes and rented office buildings and work with the needy, as demonstrated by the Laundry Love ministry above. Hinch also finds congregations tutoring low-income students, and providing services to the homeless. I’m not particularly religious, but this is work I can believe in.

How F. Scott Fitzgerald Did Money

Fitzgerald, we also learn from this terrific American Scholar piece, was also paid no less than $1,000 per week during his Hollywood years and had an annual income of roughly $500,000 a year when adjusted for inflation.
