Romans 11:1-12

Paul refers to a remnant, a small strong-hold of believers. I've hear reference to this quite a bit from more conservative, evangelical speakers. I wonder, though, how much it pertains to us now. Living in a free society, supposedly founded on Christian values, are we really the minority? Are we clinging together just so we can stay alive? I suppose there are small, rural congregations that feel that way. Although, I have to wonder if some of them just need to let go and go ahead and join the neighboring church, or the "city" church. I also like this sense of community that being a remnant brings. I just don't know if we're in such desperate straits. Maybe I'm just fooling myself.
