Remember Tom Friedman, and The World is Flat? Well, it’s getting bumpier. Things are changing, possibly for the better. Jobs are “returning” to the U.S., with even brighter prospects for the future. “Localnomics” is the new buzz-word, and local leadership reaping rewards. Education is still key, and that picture is less encouraging. In a politically volatile world, the U.S. looks safer and better.

For women under 30, most births occur outside marriage, and in a Pew Research poll, 39% say marriage is becoming obsolete. “Marriage has become a luxury good,” according to a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania. The effects on children are varied, and far from clear. Churches are struggling to adapt to the new reality.
