An everyday conversation about faith, culture and life

On Sunday, a gunman opened fire on police in Baton Rouge; as of this writing three brave officers are no longer with us.
This comes on the heels of five officers killed in Dallas.
Over the last year or so, social unrest often dominates the news of the day. With this backdrop, the GOP convention takes place in Cleveland. Americans will hold our collective breath, wondering what chaos may break out during the week.
As events unfold across our country, it was just days ago when we received horrific news out of Nice, France. Terror. Most recently, an axe attack in Germany. Terror, again.
What to make of all of this?

In my Friday post at Pregnancy Help News, the idea of "community" keeps coming to mind. For those involved in this vital ministry which can ultimately create a new culture of life in American and around the world, we know growth is vital. But how?
The answer--or perhaps part of it--involves one simple question: “What is it about our work that would motivate you to be a part of our community?”
You'll see the "why" of this question in the column. I invite you to slip over there and find out the reasons behind the question. It's a bit different from my regular columns, but hopefully worth your time.

My column regarding Little Britches earlier this week was one of this blog's most-read posts. The gist of the column was a quote from the book regarding character and as I thought about that quote throughout the week it hit me: The reason the abortion industry is crumbling is because it feeds off of deception.
The quote? "A man’s character is like his house. If he tears boards off his house and burns them to keep himself warm and comfortable, his house soon becomes a ruin."
The abortion industry is pulling boards off of its own house to stay warm, but this won't last. My column today at Pregnancy Help News zeroes in on this fact.

Yesterday’s announcement by FBI Director James Comey was baffling. At the beginning of his presser, Comey made it abundantly clear that mishandling classified information—even “unintentionally”—is a criminal offense. He also made it clear that Clinton was guilty under this standard.
Yet, Comey is not recommending any prosecution in the Clinton case.
From Comey, we now know Mrs. Clinton lied—many times—by claiming the information she placed on her private server was “not classified at the time.”
Unfortunately, we also know from Comey that it is quite likely that bad actors now have these emails. All of this, thanks to the private server she set up that—as Comey pointed out—was not as secure as a gmail account.
All of which brings me to . . . a children’s book.

Thomas Jefferson knew how to write a long sentence and pack it with power. The final sentence of the Declaration of Independence carries 158 words (if I counted correctly), and each took a loose confederation of states one step closer to its destiny as an independent nation.
At a time when our social and political structure is aligned against the most innocent among us, The Wall outlines a plan to ending abortion as we know it.
PHCs are the ultimate answer to creating a new culture of life in America. Using the powerful story of Nehemiah, The Wall shows us why, and how this can take place—in the next 10 years.
Place this book in the hands of pro-life friends in your community and they will see a clear plan of action in which they can play key roles.
For anyone who is pro-life, The Wall is the answer to the question, “How can we actually win?” And for pregnancy help centers, this book is the next step in a new vison, new growth, and powerful impact in your community.
Catch the vision behind The Wall today; you’ll want to pass it on.
