The setting was festive with Christmas décor and cookies but the discussion was holy. I was sitting in the governor's mansion with about 75 pastors and leaders from around the country—including Mike and Cindy Jacobs, Pastor Jim and Rosemary Garlow, Paul Tan, and E.W. Jackson—to hear what was on Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal's heart about the United States of America.
Although he's a successful politician, Jindal understands that leadership in America will not come from a politician or a movement for social change. After sharing his powerful testimony of how Christ found him, Jindal pointed to the need for a "spiritual and transforming revival" that would help us recapture the vision of American pioneers who on the Mayflower signed, "In the name of God and for the advancement of the Christian faith."
With that Jindal invited us—and Americans across the country who are crying out for mercy over judgment even in the face of a brittle economy, raging immorality and an uncertain future—to join him at The Response in Baton Rouge on Jan. 24.
