I just sat down for the first time since I woke this morning. I felt like I was going in circles. Acting a bit manic by flitting from one job to the next. I got a bit of adrenaline rush and started finishing all the little jobs that needed to be done. I was actually like a crazy woman doing more than one project at a time. After hours of organising and making phone calls, I heard a nice, confident voice say, “1 Kings 19:12 … ‘after the fire came a gentle whisper’; you’re getting a bit crazy and out of breath, come sit with me for a while.” So, I did.
I sat with him and reflected on who he is. He is great, he is strong, he is forever, he is able, he is kind, he is my friend. He is all powerful, he is enough, he is patient, he is big so much bigger than anything I face or feel may be my demise. He is everything.
Fifteen years ago when we moved to Scotland we encountered a community full of non- evangelised unreached youth. Contrastingly, as we got to know our community more we saw an older generation of ‘believers’ who were well dressed and generally legalistic. This group locked the church door on a Sunday evening so the youth would not come in and disrupt service. We had the privilege of giving our faith to these unwanted raggamuffins. We saw many young people come to faith and often they would say: “my granny goes to church.” However, their grannies never share their faith with them or their parents. So we had two lost generations roaming around spiritually lost.
It never occurred to us that parent’s or grandparents wouldn’t share their faith with their own family. How is it even possible? Recently I found some statistics from YoutScape.
“Christian parents were only slightly keener than non-religious parents to pass on their beliefs (36% vs. 31%), unlike parents of other faiths (eg. Muslims of which 86% wanted to pass on their faith) Christian parents were worried about imposing their beliefs” https://www.youthscape.co.uk/research/publications
Neutral parenting results in us not loving our kids as God has asked us to.
“You should have taught us the things of God, and you did not; you should have restrained us from sin and corrected us, and you did not; you were the means of our original corruption and guiltiness, and yet you never showed any competent care that we might be delivered from it…woe unto us that we had such careless parents. ” New England Puritan
This has been a real labour of love. These songs have been written, performed and produced by Cornerstone members. We have been working on this project for well over two years. Praise God, it is finished at last!
