Apparently Christian Missionaries are heading for secular France. According to a report in today’s Telegraph:
"There has been a crisis of confidence in Christianity across Europe," said Martin Thompson of the Church Mission Society. "We are beginning to see Europe as a strategic priority."
No longer is the Church sending missionaries to Africa. Indeed, it is quite the reverse. Amid the Anglican Church’s squabble of over homosexuality last year, two African missionaries came to the UK because they felt the word of God needed a boost on these shores.
Of course, after France’s defence of revolutionary secularism - the banning of ostentatious religious symbols in state buildings, including schools – the French are now seen as the most godless in Europe. And more power to them!
