Stand4Life

Somebody handed me a postcard last Sunday with this picture on it.

Needless to say, that got my attention.

The flip side contained this information:

It’s time to leave our beautiful churches and stand in the streets and cry out with wisdom.  We CAN change public opinion about abortion in our region! As we pray for our government to uphold life, we have a responsibility in our own region to be a witness.  After all, abortions are not happening in the Supreme Court building, they happen in our neighborhoods!  The church is required to be the conscience of America.  Let’s start in our own backyards. This is a call to action!  On May 7, thousands will gather in silent prayer from 10am-12pm, covering every abortion center in Florida.  We will lay aside our denominational differences and preferences to be the demonstration of justice for those who have no voice.  We will come as a silent force with one message: LIFE.

I checked out the website and found this video:

Turns out the All Women’s Health Center at 431 Maitland Ave, Altamonte Springs, just north of our meeting location, is one of the targeted abortion clinics.

Why not consider participating?

TLC Walk for Life

Will you join us?

Tomorrow, March 27, at 9 AM at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando, people from all over the city will gather for the annual “Walk for Life” hosted by True Life Choice, a crisis pregnancy ministry.

Their mission statement reads like this:

True Life Choice is a mission in active obedience to Jesus Christ that saves unborn babies and their families from the consequences of abortion by: Equipping people involved in crisis pregnancies to make life-affirming choices; Healing people suffering from post-abortion stress to find healing; Encouraging unmarried people to embrace sexual purity; and communicating the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ.

OGC has long supported this strategic ministry and participates every year in the walk, their principal fund raising event of the year.

Come and join us on a walk just like this one.

You’ll enjoy a complementary breakfast, get some exercise, and meet some great people. Make a pledge on behalf of one of the walkers from OGC or give a donation of your own.

Also, the offering in our joint Good Friday service with Faith Baptist Church will go entirely to the support of this fine organization.

I hope to see you at Lake Eola first thing tomorrow morning!
