You have to watch the whole thing for the whole effect.
I haven’t been doing a good job of posting. I’m working to get back into the swing of blogging, but for now, let me say happy thanksgiving!
This is one of the best political posts I’ve read in a long time.

I can’t tell you how many e-mails I got before Tuesday about the Christian values at stake in this election. The calls to prayer… the passionate pleas to mobilize our congregation… I haven’t heard from those people since.This is a dangerous post for me to write, but I think it might be good for us to be ‘losers’ in the political arena for a while…
…Just in case we got the idea we could legislate our way to a transformed culture. ~ Just in case we aligned the church with a particular political party. ~ Just in case we mistook the USA for that city shining on a hill… rather than the Church of Jesus Christ.
I’m afraid people have associated the movement of Christ a little too closely with a political agenda. And it’s killing the church. It would be highly beneficial in our ‘Daily-Show-culture’ for us to be stripped of any political influence until we can learn to rely on Christ for cultural transformation. We cannot legislate our way to a revival.
Today, we officially opened the vtONE Prayer Room. The first half hour served as our time to dedicate the room to prayer. We had nine people (about the limit of what the prayer room can hold) come to the dedication. I’m excited about the prayer room and how God is going to use this place to impact Virginia Tech.
God has big things in store for our campus, but we’re not going to see big things happen here unless we are asking for them and believing that God will deliver. Let’s dare to imagine a day when the entire campus is part of God’s kingdom.
Now all glory to God, who is able, through his mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. Glory to him in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.
