  • An analysis of the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Consumer Expenditure Survey 2021, cash contributions to charitable causes.
  • Chapter 8 considers the fact that church members can make this age of affluence an age of intentional miracles.  Intentional miracles happen when someone decides to take an action, in Jesus’ name, with the strong possibility that the results of that action will have an intensely positive effect on a dire circumstance.  How church people deciding to do more intentional miracles could affect the church, the youth, and society at large are explored.  The potential for church people to reduce, in Jesus’ name, under-age-5 child deaths that are occurring around the world from treatable causes is demonstrated in chapter 8.
