“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Reflections of my wife on life, disability and hope in God"

"How could Mark do this to me? How dare he get sick! He was supposed to be the strong one. I was the weak one! “Damn you,” I thought! I should be the one to have this disease. I could cope with it better. He was the one with most energy, I could accept this much more easily if I were the one! I could just slink away from the world. It would be okay. I was angry sad, bitter but most of all scared!" -- LaRee Pickup
