Last night NBC devoted the entire Dateline program to chronicling Detroit’s struggle for survival & rebirth. Lead by Michigan native Christ Hansen the episode included interviews with the new mayor (& former Detroit Piston) Dave Bing, Kid Rock, a lady who takes in unwanted children, a family scrambling to keep its home, a political insider, & a couple seeking to transform their neighborhood. In just a few short hours the program has generated a torrent of responses, both good & bad.
As a Christian I found this Dateline special to be helpful in 2 ways:
1. I learned a bit more about the city I love & will give my life in serving for the cause of Christ.
2. I am heartened yet again by indications God is massing assets in preparation for a supernatural gospel advance.
