A pastor friend of mine sent me this article the other day and it reignited an urgency that I haven't felt in a while.
Many refer to Europe as being in a post-Christian state. People of Europe see the bad things Christianity has done on their continent and in the world: The Crusades, Spanish Inquisition, the perception of rampant sexual abuse by catholic priests, etc.
They look at atrocities like this and make a decision. Their logic says, "If Christianity produces these horrific situations, then we will not have Christianity." All across Europe today, many churches sit empty. In fact, there are many churches that are now being turned into bars. The picture below is of the Church Bar in Dublin, Ireland. Churches are closing left and right. Europe needs a move of God.
We MUST get to Ireland, quickly. Not only is our time on this earth quickly winding down, but the culture in Ireland is rapidly pushing the idea of Christianity into the intellectual gutter.
Please pray that our budget will be raised quickly so that we can leave as soon as possible. There is no time to waste. The time is NOW.
We love and appreciate all you do. Keep up the amazing work.
P.S. America is typically just a few decades behind Europe politically, socially, and in many cases religiously. Something to think about.
