Who's Your One?
A Recent report from Pew research on the state of religion in our country shows a dramatic decline in the number of Americans who identify as Christian.  In 2007, 78% said they were Christians.  In 2018-2019, that number dropped to 65%.  In other words the spiritual state of our great country is quickly diminishing, not to mention how many souls are in peril.  That is obviously concerning but even more telling is the rise of those who identify as atheist, agnostic or "nothing in particular".  That number now stands at 26%, or one in four Americans.  Most troublesome is the large percentage of young people who rarely to to church and is the large percentage of young people who rarely go to church and profess no particular view on faith.  That group now represents 44% of Americans ages 19-29 and they have little or nothing to do with religion at all.  That doesn't bode well for our future.  We desperately need a powerful move of the Holy Spirit.  This is why we truly need to commit to "Who's Your One".  Today's message reminds us how important seeking out your one is WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
