Since the Boom got under Way 20 years ago . Religious bodies have spent upwards of $17 billion on bricks and mortar. Not since King Solomon bankrupted Israel 3,000 years ago to build a Gold plated Temple in Jerusalem has a nation been seized by so extravagant an ecclesiastical edifice Complex. Large sums Are still being invested in new or enlarged houses of worship. But the curve of expenditure is now clearly downward. . Government figures show that Peak outlays for religious construction which reached an All time Peak of $1.2 billion in 1966, declined to $950 million in 1969 a a drop of about 20 per cent. Commerce department officials expect this years outlay to drop below $900 million for the first time in More than a decade. The decrease in Church con precipitate than these figures remembering the example of suggest. Because of rising con Jesus who went about doing Good Striction costs $900 million this without knowing from one Day to year will buy less space than $600 million would procure five years ago. From the perspective of a local congregation debating whether to build the discouraging fact is that a Structure that would have coat $300,000 in 1965 would Cost $400,000 this year and perhaps More. Moreover the interest rates Ai mortgages also have gone up. Instead of paying 5va or 6 per cent a Church now counts itself Lucky to be Able to line up a loan at 8h per cent. All of which Means that any congregation which embarks on new construction these Days must be prepared to conduct a High pressure building fund drive and also in All likelihood take on a heavy Burden of Long term debt. Aside from such practical considerations a growing number of pastors and laymen Are suffering pangs of conscience about committing such a Large proportion of the churches Energy and resources to the construction the next where head find shelter some churchmen Are wondering whether a costly and self entered preoccupation with construction is becoming to a Community which dares to Call itself a the body of a congregation does require some place to meet. But its base of operation need not be a $480,000 Church. Many congregations Are thriving today a in storefronts school auditoriums movie Heaters the recreation rooms of High Rise apartment buildings and trailers converted into Mobile chapels.
