March For Life 2008

Please consider missing a day of work or school and bearing the expense and difficulty of travelling to Washington, D.C. this coming Tuesday, January 22nd, to participate in the March for Life 2008.

God calls us to love one another, and love seems to so often (if not always) involve sacrifice. Please consider sacrificing for the sake of the future mothers and unborn children that may suffer from unjust laws.

Even more, please consider sacrificing out of love for the hearts and souls of those in political power who support abortion as a human right. Weighty indeed must be this matter upon their souls. Perhaps one of them will be swayed this year by the number of people who come to express their concern for unborn life!

Christ told us, "You have heard that it was said, 'Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect. (Mat. 5:43-58)"

Yours truly would be happy to meet up with any brothers or sisters for the walk, to share in Christian fellowship. I would also be happy to accommodate travels of anyone thinking of participating (I live near BWI airport, and will give rides as I am able). Let me know!

While I'm at it, please remember to pray today for Christian Unity, as this is the second day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. What better way to express unity than to join together as God's people in opposition to a rule of law that permits such a grave immorality?
