    The Awakenings wreaked havoc on Presbyterianism. Sunday was from my hometown of Ames, Iowa.

    For a second there, I thought you were talking about a band. That would be a pretty good band name, “The Awakenings”. We should start a band. Hey, maybe we could spark a Revival! Maybe we could reach up into heaven and bring God down … oh wait… I have righteousness based on faith, my heart’s not supposed to say that (Rom 10:6)

    Rube, I play guitar and would love to join your rockin teenage combo – The Awakenings. We can play songs like “I come to the garden alone” and other Evangelical hits that feature “me, me, I, I, I” – all the stuff that I’m doing for Father God.
