Our churches have not suffered the persecution Christians in other parts of the world have suffered. But the church today has suffered from irrelevance.
The latest onslaught was dealt by a high-ranking New Mexico official, a leader in the New Mexico State Legislature.
The Speaker of the House, Mr. Brian Egolf (D-Santa Fe) has ended the practice of having clergy begin each floor session with a prayer, an invocation of God’s presence in the proceedings.
The New Mexico Constitution itself requires a prayer, so Mr. Egolf, having dismissed clergy, has called for prayers from the House members themselves.
If Christianity is to remain relevant, our clergy must step forward.
Please have your Pastor, Priest or Rabbi call Mr. Egolf and volunteer.
Mr. Egolf’s Roundhouse number is (505) 986-4782. His email is firstname.lastname@example.org.

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged,
for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
