Drupal 6 - the core - is stable, but some of the modules have been waiting
on other modules which are just getting into good shape about now. Along
with D6, came major changes to two of the most heavily used modules CCK
(Content Construction Kit) and Views. CCK particularly has a number of
modules that depend on it that have not been prorted to D6. Some of them are
simple enough and just require someone to take the time to do it. Others are
more complicated. You might find that it would be worth it to invest in D6
depending on your needs. I'm personally going D6 with my project. I don't
relish the upgrade process, reworking things, etc. Additionally, there
aren't many "new" modules coming out for D5 for the latest things. IMHO, a
church site would benefit from OpenID that comes with D6 by default.
It comes down to evaluating what you need/want and figuring out what the
cost of the two directions are at this point. Drupal is at a somewhat
confusing state for this decision.
Oh, and Fuzzie, I didn't think you were putting Drupal down. I was just
updating your comments. WordPress is a great simple CMS if you don't need
