In the culture, we set our hopes on technology, politics and the hope of peace. But as technology traps and isolates us and politics divide us, people can feel increasingly distressed. Pastor Mark Sayers says throughout history, these periods of decline usually precede powerful spiritual renewal and even revival. Ed Stetzer talks with him about how the bad news in the world may actually be good news for the church.
