One of the projects I’ve been working on lately with the Virginia First Foundation and the Virginia Christian Alliance is a documentary where Pastors talk about the implications of the Supreme Court’s recent decision on marriage and how the Christian community should respond.

We can’t be surprised when it arrives. Getting ready, at least spiritually, isn’t optional.

From all walks of life and across many denominations, there’s a clear and consistent determination out there that while government can do what it is wont to do, there’s a lot of folks out there who are going to stand firm no matter what.
He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:10-11

UPDATE: And within hours, the hate mail starts arriving. Anyone thinking that the persecution of Christians is fanciful and farfetched should take a look at what’s arriving in my inbox about a movie by Christians, for Christians in their own community.
