10/11/2010 Trends

One of the things I enjoy spending time doing is looking at Trends. Specifically, Biblical trends or trends of a spiritual nature related to the Bible. I especially enjoy sifting local, regional, national and international news with an eye toward these kinds of trends. I find it even more exciting when keeping an eye out for trends that reveal the subtle movements of God’s hand, and His adversary as well.

It amazes me how our culture can be at two extremes at the same time. The best of everything technologically, for example, while at the same time the worst of everything when it comes to things like morality.

Maybe it is a natural fusion of my degree in Public Relations and my training in the Bible.

What kinds of things (we’ll call these ‘Trends:) do you pick up on from these popular and seemingly random news headlines from the past week?
