Good morning everyone!
So few in our day will be a voice for the voiceless—and there are none so voiceless as unborn children. Our church has a long history of speaking up for the unborn child and for tangibly helping mothers and families in crisis pregnancies. In the last year we have begun to support CareNet. For years we have sent monthly support to Aid for Women. Also, for close to two decades we have participated in Life Chains.
Life Chain is scheduled for Sunday. There will be chains all across the United States. Ours will be right outside the Shelia Daniels Christian Academy immediately after our worship service (the chain will start at 12:00 and end at 1:00. A Life Chain is a silent protest of abortion. We will stretch out along Washington Street holdings signs with such messages as “Abortion Kills,” “Adoption is the Loving Option,” “Jesus Forgives and Heals” and “El Aborto Mata Niños.”
From a pastoral perspective I urge everyone able to join us for Life Chain. Young and old can participate. If your health makes it difficult for you to stand for an hour, bring a lawn chair or borrow a chair from the church.
(Prov 24:11-12 NIV) 11 Rescue those being led away to death; hold back those staggering toward slaughter. 12 If you say, “But we knew nothing about this,” does not he who weighs the heart perceive it? Does not he who guards your life know it? Will he not repay each person according to what he has done?
