But China’s demographic crisis could also be an evangelical opportunity."

"The U.S. government placed tens of thousands of migrant children in unscreened homes without even writing down the phone numbers or addresses of the adults in charge, a congressional investigation revealed. As the government eased safety precautions to deal with an overwhelming number of unaccompanied minors, thousands of children were trafficked as slaves, abused, or simply disappeared."

"We had weird rules, but as a parent I can understand my parents’ positions and inconsistencies a bit more. Navigating culture with young children is tough, and I’ve had my own concerns about what is right and wrong for my kids and what will help them on their faith journeys. I shooed my son out of the room for watching 'Rocky' because of violence but let him sit on my lap while I watched old 'Simpsons' episodes. Just the other night I had a conversation with my wife about why I don’t want our son to play with toy guns but I was okay with her buying him a 'Star Wars' NERF blaster for his birthday. In years to come, we’ll laugh at our inconsistencies and the weird positions we took, just like I’m laughing at some of my parents’ odder rules today. And over time, I’m sure those rules will in some way influence my kids’ personalities, just as the ban on movies somehow instilled a love of them in me."
