A response from the Pastor

My friend, Pastor James, sent me an e-mail in response to my review on Gran Torino, specifically in regards to his relationship with my young friend, DaYue. He speaks a truth that I can't deny - we need to outreach to the younger generation. He gave me permission to share this with you all, my faithful readers:

"First I am deeply touched that you thought of me when you saw the movie.

I think we as men of faith, have no other choice but to take our life experience and wisdom (really all the Holy Spirit's empowerment) and share it with a world that has grown so dark, is so far off track, is full of pseudo-families and pretend friends, and which has eviscerated our young men.

Satan not only has made many of our families lack masculine leadership, but also many of our churches are lacking male headship as well. We need to stop this onslaught, even if it is with one guy. We need to do whatever possible to pour ourselves into the lives of others....as you have been poured into and made a man of God, you must turn around and find someone to pour into...the problem will not be where do you find one, but how can you only find one. At least, one at a time; until they can move on and begin to pour themselves into a life.

I am not doing nothing special - I am living my faith and acting on it with another human being. When he is done, the Lord will bring someone else along. This is what we do as man of God, men of faith, men of integrity. Nothing else matters."

That's all for today.
