My head is full of thoughts, and I have to write them down.

The Revolution – Another Great Awakening?

George Barna explains it this way:

“The Great Awakening swept the nation from the 1730s through the 1760s…1820s and 1830s. The ultimate product wast the first-time spiritual conversion of sinners. The Great Awakenings were spiritual revivals in the truest sense. The new Revolution differs in that its primary impetus is not salvation among the unrepentant but the personal renewal and recommitment of believers. The dominant catalyst is people’s desperation for a genuine relationship with God. The renewal of that relationship spurs believers to participate in spreading the gospel. This is the Church being restored so the Holy Spirit can work effectively through the body of Christ.”
