We listened (by radio) to the inauguration as we traveled home from our cross-country travels. We heard the screams of the protesters and the cheers of the supporters. We listened to commentators as they bemoaned this day and kept referring to the new president as “their president” meaning “theirs but not ours.” We heard the division that threatens to rip our country apart flowing loud and clear through the airwaves. How should we enter this new era? How should we respond to a new presidency?
Yesterday, I cried out for the Church to not remain silent on the issue of abortion. Today I’m appealing to the Church to also reach out to those who’ve endured the brutality of abortion, or are struggling with the decision of an unplanned pregnancy. It isn’t enough to stand against abortion; we need to take a stand “for life” and one way we do that is by offering true life and freedom in Christ to those who are caught in the death trap.
There’s been a lot of noise this week, hasn’t there? People are marching, protesting, and voicing their opinions. Yesterday, we marched. We marched in support of the fight for the unborn.
