“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

Who am I that the God of all creation and eternity would care about me -- not in some passing disinterested way -- but in an intimate daily way. He has filled my life with His love and my home with peace. Granted, much of my life has been marred with disease and heartbreak yet in the midst of it all God presence has been with me whispering "Be not afraid, I AM with you." In the darkness of suffering He has been my light.

It has been in my pain that I found myself in Christ. In surrender I found freedom. After three decades with degenerative multiple sclerosis I have discovered that this life is only the journey not the destination. I'm being prepared, through faith in Jesus Christ, to stand in the real and perfect presence of the God of all creation and eternity -- all that is seen and unseen. 

In loss I gained all that matters. -- Mark
