We have much to learn in the mainline church about passing on our faith to new generations. So why do our young so easily get over living out our faith within the church? Catholics never get over being Roman Catholic. Just ask one. Why do our young so easily leave behind the faith we affirm? Ever notice how some parents say, ‘We never talk about our faith. We don’t need to. We practice it.’ This much is clear. If that was enough at one time–and I am not certain it ever was–then it clearly is not enough today.
We live in an era when so much less can be taken for granted. Christianity’s run as the unofficial religion of America has ended some decades ago. Today’s world no longer supports and promotes Christian things like it had for years. Today it no longer suffices merely to breathe the air or drink the water in America to become a Christian. As Roger said, as parents having faith isn’t enough. Unless we radiate faith, it’s invisible. Don’t overlook or assume it. Our faith is the only true fully encompassing foundation for living.”
Powerful words from the leader of our church!
I look forward to radiating our faith together this Sunday. God bless you and stay passionate!
