Yesterday I was in prayer for the American Church. I had read in Mark 11 about Jesus cursing the fig tree and cleansing the Temple, and I was grieved for the Church once again.
On my drive yesterday afternoon I listened to this episode of The Holy Post Podcast (put on by Phil Vischer, creator of Veggie Tales, and Skye Jethani). Skye’s interview with Julie Roys on the “Evangelical Industrial Complex” (beginning around the 41 minute mark) hit home as to what troubles me in the American Church.
Then… to hear about the burning of Notre Dame in Paris… and the symbolism it created in my spirit…
We are in a precarious place in the American Church and we have refused to recognize our sin. We are in trouble. This Holy Week, May we come in repentance to the Cross and experience true resurrection this season.
