Weary Jubilee

Head and Heart by Garry Wills provides a thorough history of organized (and disorganized) Christianity since The United States became a nation.  Thy Kingdom Come by Randall Balmer is a book you must read to gain an understanding of modern Evangelicals and politics of the religious right.  However, I wouldn't lay Weary Jubilee at either of their feet.

If you are young and/or not part of the backlash, you probably are already uninterested in attending The Weary Jubilee.  It is where we go when we want to be told what to think.  There is an easy certainty about this place that makes it the ultimate comfort zone, if that's what a person is looking for. 

The truth about The Weary Jubilee is that it is becoming more irrelavent as those of us who are older die off and those of us who are younger are not interested in the pointless battles. Jubilee members find it important to be surrounded by enemies.  Many are the low-hanging fruit easily assimilated into the backlash.  Inside the circled wagons, the need for excitement is satisfied, previously unfulfilled by tiresome formalities.  

Many people, old and young, are finding other means of fulfillment, self-worth, and ways to serve their Savior and fellow man.
