In an era where Christianity is declining, the mainstream media now recognizes pockets of revival igniting the United States. Of Americans who have rekindled their relationship with church, “more than half of people said they go more often than they used to—in other words, about a quarter of Americans have gotten more active in their religious communities in recent years, not less,” according to The Atlantic.

“All of this is a way of saying that, comparatively speaking, there’s more activity happening on the devout side of the spectrum than the drop-out side; this study suggests that even in a time of religion’s public decline, some people are experiencing religious revival,” the article reads. Indeed, from coast to coast, revival is breaking out. According to a Pew Research study, an increasing number of people feel a need to have God in their lives, and are seeking Him out by attending local churches. CONTINUE
