My husband and I saw the movie Jesus Revolution a few weeks ago. The movie tells the story of the nascent Jesus Movement during the summer of 1969, focusing on the spiritual collision course between a struggling teen, Greg Laurie, traditional pastor Chuck Smith, and hippie preacher Lonnie Frisbee. I came to faith in Christ in early 1974. I am a daughter of the revival that swept across the country during those heady years. The words to the once-popular Christian campfire chorus were true: it only took a spark to get a fire going.
Wait! I think I've been doing life backwards! "The focus in the second half of life shifts from acquiring wealth, success, and prominence through work to valuing relationships, service to others, and the inner journey." I haven't yet acquired wealth success, or prominence! :) And I'm over 60.
