I found this news story at the Mpls Star/Tribune. I am telling you, our young people are facing things that we older folks never have. I am going to be 66, I have never seen America so evil! Also the political turmoil of the last 6 years has done great damage to all us us, both the Dems and GOP are behaving awful! The political climate in America stinks to ‘high heaven!’ My heart breaks for our children to grow up in such a time as this. My Daddy always told me to ‘leave this world a better place than I found it” I am sorry Daddy, I have failed. This is not what me and Sharon envisioned for our Children and our grandchildren. I am here to tell you its going to be a very dark winter here in America.

Team Jesus, This is such a good read, very important research for you and your Pastor. Please make sure to share this post with all. This report shows we have much work to do.

FROM CHURCH LEADERS:
The American Bible Society released a very robust report on their findings from a large research project on the “state of the Bible.” There are some very encouraging trends related to Bible engagement among Americans and the major impact Bible engagement has upon us. According to research, reading the Bible increases our joy, our outlook on life, our likelihood to be good neighbors, and our ability to forgive others. The research also reveals some troubling and concerning trends, trends which ministry leaders should be burdened over and pray for wisdom in how to address.
