Strange Times

"We live in a strange time."

So begins an excellent book review at CERC. It was timely finding this article because of the shock from which I'm still reeling after watching Oprah tell the couple in the 'open' marriage that at least they're being upfront.

We are not in Pagan Rome. We live in Secular America. Though we face the same challenge the early Christians faced in transmitting the faith, we do have so many appeals at our disposal the early martyrs lacked. Most people have fallen away from something, whereas the pagans had never heard of Christ.

Talk to strangers. Remind them that they are part of the Family of God. Be familiar. And always, always be Christ.
