In the 1960’s and early 1970’s the nation was in crisis with the war in Vietnam, protests in the streets, civil rights marches, riots at the 1968 Democratic National Convention, the birth of the drug culture, the sexual revolution and more.
In the midst of it, God gave us the Charismatic Renewal and the Jesus Movement, both of which I think we kind of screwed up before it was all over. Now we find ourselves in crisis again as a nation and we see flare-ups of revival here and there. As yet, however, it appears to be nothing like a unified surge across a broad base such as I remember from four and five decades ago. I pray that such a unified surge is coming.
