In the little town I grew up in, the council of churches thought that more people should be attending services on Sunday and maybe a good ole revival should be held. The churches pooled their resources, rented a big tent on a nearby farmers field, lined up several local speakers and set up tables in the back for people who became interested, could find out more about the churches in town and sign up if they wished.

At the end of the day, the ministers from the churches got together to compare notes. The Methodist minister said he thought it went well. His church signed up 4 new member families. The Baptist preacher said he had done even better than that by signing up 6 families. The Presbyterian minister said he thinks he did the best. He saw 10 of his worst parishioners leaving his church for others.
