How do we protect our kids from the darkness? What if instead we shift the paradigm and work towards preparing them for it?

He also speaks a powerful word about this current generation as he sees them–having a depth, a want-to, energy and desire! You’ll leave inspired to continue the work you’re doing in the lives of children in your circle of influence, and with a renewed faith that this generation can and will do something powerful for our faithful God!
