Tithing reduced in tough times? Yes and no
from The Bulletin
From Jan. 8, 2010:
For many people, the money they to contribute to their churches is a regular part of their budgets. Job losses and reductions in income have forced some members of local congregations to reduce how much they give their churches through individual gifts or by tithing -- the practice of giving 10 percent of one's income to the church -- and some local churches have cut their budgets in response. At other churches, large gifts from a few people or increased membership have buoyed their finances.
