Let us now pray


    The spirit of our country is crying out for help. Who will answer the call? All of the scapegoats have been named and blamed — guns, Goth, Bill Clinton, The ’60s, low church attendance, Marilyn Manson, absentee parents, divorce and the list goes on and on. Says one commentary, “It’s not one thing, it’s everything.” Some call it the Culture of Death. Ask yourself:

    Do images of and references to death, hate and violence outnumber the images of and references to life and love in our lives and in the lives of our children? I don’t know all the answers, but I know where to find them. Praying together just may help this country stay together.
