The Call

Last weekend there was a major event held in Nashville aimed at America's young Christians. "The Call" was a day of worship and prayer designed to rally the youth of our nation. Organizers say over 50,000 were in attendance. You can read details at BP.

Here's a quote from someone involved in this project:

"America is a sleeping nation. We have casually and nonchalantly let things slide and get worse," said Morgan Blount, a staff member of The Call from Dallas. "We are calling for young people in this country to wake up and take a stand, to pray about our world instead of just complaining about what's wrong with it. We are calling them to take action and believe that the Lord can change things."

I too believe the Lord is the only one that can change things. Let's not limit this to young people. All of us ought to take a stand. What do you think?

Amen. This sounds similar to the SBC 2007 Resolution No.6 - ON PASTORS, CULTURE, AND CIVIC DUTY.

"The Call" is aimed, it seems, as a contrast to the "free love" activity and culture that infiltrated the lives of young people a generation ago.

I agree there are some similarities to the SBC resolution. If I had been at the convention I may have picked up on that.

We must all engage our culture, salt and light!
