It’s hard to believe, but another school year is upon us, and summer is almost over! To tell you the truth, I am always excited when our first autumn cool front passes through, and summer ends. Summers here are ridiculously hot.
This issue features our annual Back to School resource guide. Be sure to check this out; we’ve spotlighted many great schools and after school activities that could help your child get connected.
On a more serious note, our nation is in the midst of a spiritual crisis. I’ve lived on this planet for nearly 56 years, and I have never seen as much deeply displayed hatred as what I see now. Mass shootings and other horrendous acts of violence have become commonplace in our nation, and no one is talking about the root cause. If you wear a MAGA hat or shirt in public these days, you are often assaulted, or worse.
Our problems will be solved by neither Republicans nor Democrats. All they do (particularly the Democrats) is further fuel our crisis. As far as I’m concerned, the media plays a big part in our nation’s predicament. It pits rich against poor, men against women, black against white, and so on, and then speculates about why people commit hateful acts. The media calls our President a traitor, felon and racist, and when he defends himself, it is outraged.
To begin healing our country, we need a great revival. Revival begins with the church, and in order for the church to make an impact, we must not be ashamed of the Gospel. Take action by leading others to Christ. Then and only then will we see a difference in our land.
