What if 2016 is like 1968?
I remember the madness of 1968, then a spiritual resurgence. I'll be shocked not to see another great resurgence here in our new madness.— Ray Ortlund (@rayortlund) July 5, 2016
Last year he wrote a short post on the same topic, that being the comparison of our time with 1968. He said our time is an intense time when cultural upheaval is exploding. He said 1968 was a spasm of national self-injury and that our time was looking like that. He was surely right. I hope you'll take the time to read it; here's his conclusion:
"2015 is the new 1968. And I’m glad to be right here, right now, with you, for the most radical cause in history. No hysterics. No fanaticism. But radical followers of Jesus doing whatever it takes to communicate the fullness of the gospel in the extremity of our times.
Let’s get after it."
