Shane Idleman, lead pastor of Westside Christian Fellowship in Leona Valley, California, says desperate times call for desperate measures. And with what is going on in America right now, he says, nothing less than desperate measures will fix the situation.

It is the second year that Westside has hosted Rend the Heavens, which begins tonight—Halloween night—and runs through Saturday, Nov. 5.
