KUER’s RadioWest has had a few shows on the growth issue of the church. That’s been discussed throughout the blogs including several discussions here. I’ve not listened to them yet. Today’s was an interview with Peggy Fletcher Stack who wrote that Tribune article last week. I did catch about 20 minutes of that show. I wasn’t too impressed as she basically only knew the raw growth statistics and apparently had done little reading on the related issues. (Like the possible causes of the trends) Kind of surprising since there is a lot of good analysis, including the often mentioned David Stewart paper. Given that she interviewed Stewart and thus had presumably read the paper, I was a little shocked at the analysis. Still it was somewhat interesting even if there was a tad too much FUD (partially due to the callers). I’m going to listen to the MP3 this evening.
KUER presumably will be having a few more shows on the issue in the future.
Today’s show was on Growth Patterns in the Church. Last week’s show was on the LDS possibly losing their majority in the state. It involved an interview with Matt Canham who has a series on this in the Tribune.
