I do hope that changes and I think the church could play a leading role.
My favourite church here (with a head priest who really, to me, is the definition of a Christian) gets it perfectly. Instead of spending cash on nice robes, marble floors and nice cars - he wears old clothes, drives an absolute wreck of a car and spends a ridiculous amount of time organising things for the local community. I need to take a picture of the huge, huge noticeboard that lists all the activities they do - all organised and run by volunteers.
They even have table tennis coaching! It really is a perfect example of how the church is the hub of the community.
Meanwhile, another church about a kilometre away does nothing for the community, the church is freezing in winter and the priests all have nice clothes, nice cars and the church is lavishly decorated. No surprise which one I attend on occasion ;)
