I know we are post-Easter but Dr. Ben Witheington’s sermon on ‘Holy Week’ (preached April 1 at the Woodlands UMC in the Woodlands Texas), could well apply to the UK as well as to the USA.
“Our land needs a revival of the heart desperately, it needs to embrace the prince of peace, not the dogs of wars. There has been a coarsening of our culture in my lifetime. We have become a less civil, a less civilized, a less Christian nation in my lifetime. Indeed, we have even become a nation that wants not merely a separation of church and state, but a separation of God from country! This does not bode well, and no amount of shock jocks on the radio ranting and raving about our demise will fix it,” says Dr. Ben Witherington.
