    Always appreciated Scott Krippayne’s music. I would imagine this more recent song would get him blacklisted by many fundagelicals, but in my opinion, he nails it.

    I’ve read some of his stuff over the years. Very wise and astute. If it weren’t so dang cold, I might join him in Canada.

    Watching the Titanic…

    “In 2009, about 725,000 Episcopalians were classified as weekly attenders. That has declined every single year since then, usually by two or three percentage points. By 2016, the number of regular attending Episcopalians had dropped to about 600,000. Before the pandemic hit, regular attendance had leveled off around 550,000. But, then COVID-19 shut down churches all across the United States. It hit TEC hard. Average attendance dropped by about sixty thousand between 2019 and 2020 — a dip of nearly twelve percent in a single year. Or said another way, church attendance in The Episcopal Church dropped by a third between 2009 and 2020.”

    Just a little read to set all the hairs on your head straight up!

    Officer Hoppy,

    I have friends who believe this stuff in a casual “well, I know some of it is true “ way. I’m sure they’ll vote for Mr T if he runs again.

    It’s sad, yet understandable, that many people now equate all white christians who love their country with this twisted “christian” nationalist crap. Lord have mercy.

    I won’t pretend to say this prophetically, but I can see a 2024 win for Trump as the end of America, or at least all that is good in America.

    Saw this on a local church website, and my first reaction was, “YESSS!!”

    “…we represent a variety of denominational backgrounds. We are also theologically, politically and socially diverse; we have learned that we can differ from one another and still worship, study, fellowship and serve together.”

    Let’s hope your prediction doesn’t come true. It’s amazing to me how Trump followers are so blind to the truth. They accept a proven purveyor of misinformation the Epoch Times. It’s maddening

    I saw the article too. Sad that our faith and our churches are being hijacked by miscreants.

    I and other’s hope for new blood to be injected into our political choices. You know, the person that actually cares for us and what we want and need, and can work across party lines. Unfortunately we seem to want divisive and extremist characters (or lack thereof said character) who cater only to the most vocal and offensive fringe groups out there. Everytime a new President takes office, they just can’t wait to undo the previous administrations advancements on the first day in office.

    Of course that would be ideal, but our political discourse today is so focused of my-guy-is-God and the other guy is the spawn of satan, that if someone came along that seemed to fit the bill of a good and decent politician, we would be tripping over each other to try to pidgeonhole him/her into the boxes of “good” or “bad” and eventually said politician would be branded “an” or “the” anti-Christ.
