Those who are left of center esteem themselves open and tolerant. This was put to the test on a recent trip to a cultural capitol of the US. I visited each neighborhood in the city, talked with as many people as I could – believers and otherwise. The conclusion from this expedition is people are indeed open and quite friendly. They reject Christ, the Word of God and the gospel but they are quite open to hearing about those things if done so in a respectful and loving way. The country is pretty post-Christian and here above the rest, yet God conquered the hearts of Jews, Romans and Greeks in the First Century. There is hope yet! We must stop planning so much as we spend time praying for God’s plans, and then praying those plans until God answers. He cannot refuse us, we are His children and we have his mighty promises. Lets get to our knees.
