Frequently I receive downloads from the US Preaching magazine. I confess I don't often read them in detail but yesterday's reported on a poll from the Wall Street Journal which found that 39% of Americans say that religion is very important as compared with 49% in 2019. This is a marked decline from 62% in 1998. That is a disturbing statistic.
Anyway, the paragraph below had a preacher's illustration entitled: Strength from weakness. I couldn't believe my eyes.
I read it with amazement. Written a few years ago, the Editor Michael Duduit had found it and even repeated it. What an encouragement to a slowing-down blogger to keep going!
