Understanding the TimesThe Fight for America's Soul Begins Here...
We have asked this question before. When it comes to issues considered too political, why are many pastors and church leaders reluctant to speak out against the many “hot button” issues of our day? The answer is often deafening silence. There is a growing sense however, that it may be not necessarily be due to a lack of courage or conviction. How long can this paradox continue?
