Lutheran pastor in Stockholm, Sweden is so concerned to produce
church growth he’s placed a help-wanted ad in newspapers advertising
for church attenders. The minister, Bjoern Frennesson, can’t offer a
salary but he does offer church-goers “good communion,” along with
free cab rides for anyone who doesn’t have a car. The church used to
welcome 20 to 40 people, but now averages about 100.
