What Are Americans Really Worried About?

David Wakerly of Hillsong Church in Australia (Kid Inspiration) blogged about this study recently done by the folks at Barna Research.

With the 2008 presidential election campaign well underway, a new survey suggests that the biggest issue of them all may well be one that leaders do not seem to be focused upon: the well-being of America’s children…

Trailing the focus on children were matters such as improving national security (72%); helping the poor and disadvantaged (69%); upgrading the reliability and honesty in news reporting (63%); increasing the nation’s investment in environmental protection (60%); and enhancing the state of marriage and families (60%).

I don’t know about you, but this is NOT what I’m hearing about in the news, but this is what people are really worried about! I think this is a reason our recent Parenthood series at church has been so great! David expressed my opinion too – “If the government won’t focus on kids, then hey… let the church lead the way!”
