“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

I came across a video called called "Tell Them Now" in honour of Father's Day. You can see it below. The video's title struck me. 

My father
Howard Pickup
You see, when I was sixteen years old, my father died of a fatal heart attack while we were downhill skiing. I only had about a minute to tell him I love him before he closed his eyes to slip into eternity. I didn't tell him that I loved him (although he knew it). It haunted me for years.

Since that winter day, more than forty-five years ago, I have made a point of often telling my wife, children and grandchildren I love them.  

If your father is still alive, show him and tell him you love him while there's still time. Show love to all your family; tell them often how much you love them.
