I enjoyed this journey down memory lane. Well-written.
Thanks for sharing a glimpse into your interesting experience-such an important time of church building in the US. I came a generation after that but Calvary Chapel has played an important part of my growth as a Christian and I appreciate so much the ministry of Chuck Smith and so many others that came out of that movement.
I particularly liked your line "Ah, youth! A time where feelings blaze in technicolour and issues are starkly black or white, with no room for grey." That seems the perfect description. What a time! I have teen kids now and the cycle keeps on.
Great memories flowing through this piece along with the range of emotions that you've captured so clearly. Well done.
Excellent approach to the topic and one in which so many will relate.

Poignant story! I also was a part of the Jesus Movement- and wrote about it! It was a great time to be a youth.
This is a fascinating story. You took me back through time on a journey I could hardly imagine until I read your great words.
