For a day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor. No good thing does he withhold from those who walk uprightly. [O LORD of hosts, blessed is the one who trusts in you!]
Lives matter not only to those whose lives they are (i.e., my life matters to me and your life matters to you), but lives matter to those around them (i.e., your life matters to me and my life matters to you). They matter to those who are enriched by them and to those who pile up blessing or condemnation for themselves on account of the way they treat others’ lives.
During our Sanctity of Life focus, join us as we demonstrate that we value the sanctity of life and want to protect the unborn.

At the Pro-Life Action Ministries annual banquet we were informed that women’s life centers in America now outnumber abortion centers at a ratio of three to one.
Care for women is widely available.
Spread the word. And give to these non-profit centers.
On Saturday, September 13, Pro-Life Action Ministries will hold the local National Day of Remembrance to commemorate the death of children killed by abortion at gravesites and memorials around the United Sates.

In a unanimous decision, McCullen v. Coakley, released last week, the U.S. Supreme Court overturned the Massachusetts law that prohibited pro-life speech within 35 feet of an abortion facility.
Sidewalk counseling is written into the decision in a positive light. Chief Justice Roberts distinguishes between sidewalk counseling (entering into one-on-one conversations) from protesting and uses that as the hinge point in favor of this decision.
And when they came to the disciples, they saw a great crowd around them, and scribes arguing with them. And immediately all the crowd, when they saw him, were greatly amazed and ran up to him and greeted him. And he asked them, “What are you arguing about with them?” And someone from the crowd answered him, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, for he has a spirit that makes him mute. And whenever it seizes him, it throws him down, and he foams and grinds his teeth and becomes rigid.
That’s when 13 aborted babies were found in a dumpster behind the abortion center in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. Among them was a 14-week-old baby boy dismembered, with cranium crushed. The discovery made headlines in local media after Pro-Life Action Ministries held a press conference including photos.
A dignified funeral for the babies was attended by 500 people.
Consider how you might participate in pro-life events with Bethlehem in the days ahead …

The Lord blessed us October 8–12 with beautiful weather and many opportunities to witness to others about the love of God and the sanctity of life through our peaceful presence at Whole Woman's Clinic. More than 150 people were either praying or walking and praying at the clinic throughout the week!
About 70 children per week are murdered at the Whole Women’s Health clinic in Minneapolis.
With a desire to see the Lord close this abortion mill like he did the unit at Regions Hospital in 2011, we are inviting people to pray, to be present as moral support for sidewalk counselors, or to hold signs tomorrow through Saturday. Learn more.
I have been standing at the same door in front of Whole Women's Health clinic every Tuesday for three months or so. Every week I see a certain woman who comes for her dialysis appointment.
