“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

Just over a week ago, I wrote a post under the title "A Child, A Song, And The Weight Of Glory".[1]  It featured Jackie Evancho singing Nella Fantasia. The evening of the concert where she sang that song, back in 2012, at the age of twelve years, she sang another song called To Believe. It had the vocal accompaniment of other children. I want you to listen to it because it speaks to the important truth of living for something larger than self-interest. 

To teach our children the ways of God, and to love God -- through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ -- is the most important truth you can impart to your children. Fathers, take a leadership role in the spiritual development of your children. Lovingly teach them the word of God and to love the Word of God.[2]
