This book addresses the following question: What hope does Eucharistic liturgy bring to the future of churchplanting within the increasingly post-Christian urban centers of the Pacific Northwest and beyond? According to my research of a sample zip code of inner-city Portland, Oregon, only one in four people self-identify with Christianity and fewer than one in five attend church. Churches are shrinking rapidly and closing their doors. Our culture is increasingly defined as post-Christian. The plans of the recent church-planting efforts are losing ground.
