Day … Living Word and Catholic Moms hold vigil

The Lord’s servant must not quarrel; instead, he must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Those who oppose him he must gently instruct, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will. (2 Timothy 2:24-26)

Pastor Shawn from Living Word chose this passage as today’s scripture to underscore the loving, peaceful witness we all want to be, especially when praying to end abortion in front of Planned Parenthood.

These three wonderful witnesses were bundled up against the new weather that arrived over the weekend.  They were soon joined by Pastor Shawn and his daughter Joy:

Many children were witnessing today during the second shift! Shift managers Joyce and Cecelia brought their kids too!

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these (Matthew 19:14)

Can you see the “tear” on this baby’s cheek? Joy’s hot cider dripped on her sign and looked just like a tear drop!

Answer?…the CROSS!  (No cross on the T in the word SUPPORT!)

Let’s keep the Cross at the center of what we do.  God loved the world so much that if any one of us were the only one, He still would have sent His only son Jesus to the Cross to die for us.  Let’s lift high that Cross in our witness for Him.

God Bless You, and thanks for all you do on behalf of the unborn child!

Chaplain Steve
