“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

My adult daughter sent me the link below called "Calming Storms" by  Clayton Jennings. Shen and Was 8 years old and her brother was five when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS). As I have said in previous blog posts, those years were terrifying years. We pulled together as a family.

I have often wondered what impact it had on my children to watch their dad deteriorate from a healthy active man to walking with a cane then two canes, then crutches then a scooter and electric wheelchair. My daughter said her email that accompanied this video "This dude has a story eerily similar to the one Dean and me; I can relate to."

Is there a storm in your life? Trust Christ. He will see you through it. Christ has been with me throughout 30 years of multiple sclerosis. He has brought me calm in the midst of my storms of disease. There can be peace even in pain. Listen to Clayton Jennings story below.
