With Google Trends we can see what is being searched by the world. This got me wondering whether or not our denominations are “Searchworthy” (to borrow Seinfeld’s “spongeworthy” episode). Are people looking for us?
The chart doesn’t look great for any of us. Is this a strong statement from society about our relevance today?
You may wonder how helpful and accurate this is. Try exploring it yourself at Google Trends.
I have noticed that even with local congregations you will see spikes when something has happened that is newsworthy. An example of that is Moore, OK. You can see when the tornadoes hit.
