Pray for me. Contrary to some prevailing opinions, only by seeing to the salvation of my own soul can I be of any use to anyone else saving his. Go thou, and do likewise, and we may yet live to see a growing vibrant remnant.

What we need now is simply something like what Albert Camus describes:

Further, the world expects of Christians that they will eschew all fuzzy abstractions and plant themselves squarely in front of the bloody fact of history. We stand in need of folk who have determined to speak directly and unmistakably and come what may, to stand by what they have said."
