Engaging With A Tuned Out Culture
Is America Post-Christian? What is clear from a recent Gallup Poll, is that for the first time in 80 years, fewer than half of Americans claim to be part of a congregation, and with each generation the number of Americans engaged with religion is declining dramatically.

God Already Knows
Life never quite plays out the way we imagine or expect, so how we can we face the unexpected unknown moments and events that tomorrow holds?
