Now the boy Samuel ministered to the Lord before Eli. And the word of the Lord was rare in those days; there was no widespread revelation.2 And it came to pass at that time, while Eli was lying down in his place, and when his eyes had begun to grow so dim that he could not see,3 and before the lamp of God went out in the tabernacle of the Lord where the ark of God was, and while Samuel was lying down, 4 that the Lord called Samuel. And he answered, “Here I am!” 5 So he ran to Eli and said, “Here I am, for you called me.” Read more

All of the reports that have come in during the past few years have sounded the alarm that the number of Christians in America is declining, church attendance is down, and the largest group of those who are vacating the pews are millennials, those born in the 1980’s up until 2000. The Pew Research Center, in 2015, released a study that grabbed headlines in newspapers and the evening news proclaiming that not only were millennials leaving the Church and turning away from the faith, but every demographic was following their lead. CNN ran an article titled, “Millennials Leaving the Church in Droves.” In the article we read,
“We’ve known that the religiously unaffiliated has been growing for decades,” said Greg Smith, Pew’s associate director of religion research and the lead researcher on the new study. “But the pace at which they’ve continued to grow is really astounding.” It’s not just millennials leaving the church. Whether married or single, rich or poor, young or old, living in the West or the Bible Belt, almost every demographic group has seen a significant drop in people who call themselves Christians, Pew found.

In His Steps,
We are blessed to have lots of teachers at Britton Christian Church. There are those who teach as their profession. Men and women who pour their hearts and souls into young people in schools all across our city. There are also others who teach, not because it’s their profession, but because somewhere along the way they discovered the joy of learning and they want others to share in the same joy. For each of us, we can think back through our lives and immediately names and faces of teachers who were most influential come to mind. It might have been a music teacher who unlocked a hidden world of sounds, melodic structure, and soaring emotion that was stirred deep within us. It could have been a math teacher who transformed cold numbers and equations into exquisite pieces of art. Someone who felt the same way as the famous French mathematician, Henri Poincaré, who was able to show his students the sheer beauty of mathematics. He said to ignore the experience of math “would be to forget the feeling of mathematical beauty, of the harmony of numbers and forms, of geometric elegance. This is a true esthetic feeling that all real mathematicians know…” It’s possible you could be thinking of an English teacher who introduced you to the poetry and prose of Shakespeare, Hemingway’s “The Old Man and The Sea,” the thought provoking works of Fyodor Dostoyevsky, the Harlem Renaissance writings of Langston Hughes, or the social commentary of the novelist Jane Austen. The fields of study that are before us are limitless, but without a teacher to lead us, guide us, and show us how to enter those worlds and interpret what we are learning, they will simply go undiscovered.
