This was the cry that came forth on September 15th, 2009 at Geimeinde auf dem Weg (Church on the Way) in Berlin, Germany. The occasion was a nationwide gathering of Christian leaders, meeting on the 100th anniversary of the Berlin Declaration. The Berlin Declaration was a document written and signed by church leaders of Germany in 1909. It was the only time in history where a city and a nation officially rejected the Holy Spirit.
Last month, the International Herald Tribune reported that European populations would soon begin to shrink. The story cites an official just released study of European demographic projections by the EU. According to the EU findings, "Europeans will begin their long foreseen demographic decline in just seven years time - the point at which deaths exceed births." The report was published by the EU's statistical agency, Eurostat.
