This Sunday, January 22, is Sanctity of Life Sunday. I am aware that many Bible Study materials addressed the subject last Sunday (Jan. 15) and some churches used the same day to make their congregation aware of the value of human life from a biblical perspective. That’s great! The specific day is not important. In fact, we should be talking about this issue every Sunday in some form.
Because this weekend is the inauguration of the forty-fifth president of the United States, some pro-life organizations have moved their activities to the next weekend. Pray for those who will lead and those who attend celebrations of life in Washington, D.C.
Pray for the president’s inauguration this weekend, also. Every national leader deserves the prayer support of God’s people. This is a biblical value!
Last week I shared with you about important opportunities to grow spiritually through some training and inspirational events. I need to bring you up to date on a few significant changes in one of those events. Roman Gabriel III called me Tuesday to let me know that the cost of joining his pre-Super Bowl Rally has changed. The cost for all churches of any size will be $299.00. For small groups and individuals, the cost to download the rally will be only $19.99. But if you sign up by Jan. 22 the cost is only $9.99.
This is a powerful evangelistic tool for your church or small group! Don’t miss this opportunity to reach your community. Click here to read the updated story.
