Abandom Faith

Abandoned Faith" written by Alex McFarland and Jason Jimenez is a timely book about why Millenials are walking away from the church and how we can bring them back. The authors discuss how children who were raised in the church no longer attend once they go off to college. Parents are distraught, wondering what they did wrong. In many cases, families become estranged over the new generation of adults breaking family traditions.

When Jesus was here on earth he was a healer also to take time to pray...
Let's open ourselves that Jesus has healing for all of us this evening,
Reach down to lay hold of Christs' love far fresh and a new
The rumors are true, the tales of old
Seek life elsewhere, for this will hold none
Souls endlessly wander, all hope be gone
What rumors, you ask, whatever did befall
The christened stones, the blessed halls?
Loss of faith, sad but true
Loss of trust between me and you
Perhaps one day love will return
Until then I’ll continue to yearn
Christ in the upper room
Christ beneath the barren sod
Christ among the pier strock cold
beneath the peril & rod

he never told me it would be easy
this walk of faith let your mind radiate
feel the nurse whistle contemplate
in shades of peril Christ is there
We look to him
toward are sanctuary
a line formed across the sea
