“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 believe there is a Christian revolution that will be led by our young people. They are shining the light of Christ into the darkness of our secular culture. I have become aware of an exciting Youth Missions ministry called Street InvadersMy teenage grandson and granddaughter are active with it.

Street Invaders teaches young Christian how to make their faith real within themselves and to the world around them.  They begin with bootcamp. What is bootcamp? According to their website, it is where
young Christians "learn practical skills to help you share your faith with other people. You’ll also meet
and get to know your teammates and leaders who will be with you on your mission."
 It doesn't stop there. They continue:

"You will experience transforming worship and life-changing messages, classes to help you learn more about the life of Jesus, what it means to be a Christian, and how to live that out."

Young Christians learn how to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in new ways, to a lost and hurting
They begin in the darkest places: Inner cities. My grandson and granddaughter have gone
twice, spending two weeks evangelizing in the inner city of Vancouver, Canada. They went with Street Invaders Youth Missions. 

These young people are following our Lord's instructions to take the Gospel to people and make disciples of all nations. Their exuberance for this task puts many of their Christian elders to shame. 

At the conclusion of their successful 2018 missions
My grandson address
Street Invaders in Vancouver
trip, my grandson addressed the final praise and worship service to encourage the Street Invaders to continue their active evangelism when they return home to their own communities. Please pray for Street Invaders and all those people who came to—or will come to—a personal encounter with Jesus Christ as a result of this vital and effective youth ministry. (Also pray for Street Invaders 2019!)

There are many reasons that proper marriage is between a man and woman. It was this way for centuries before progressives with political agendas decided it can be otherwise. It is the children who will pay the highest price for this social engineering and experimentation based on ideology. But then, it's always the children who pay for their elders' societal tinkering.* 

I fail to see why children do not need a mother and a father. Would someone please explain it to me?

*Abortion is the most striking and tragic example.
