Brick by brick
Did you ever look at a beautiful big building and just go “wow, that’s magnificent”. We have many magnificent churches and buildings in Pittsburgh.
These magnificent structures didn’t just appear one day. They were built one brick at a time. One steel girder, one window installed at a time.
That’s how we will end abortion. One prayer at a time. One vigil outside the abortion clinic at a time. One day at a time. One heart changed at a time. One baby saved at time.
Grab your brick, your smile, your presence and bring it down. We can build something magnificent together. We can build the kingdom of God. It won’t be easy. If it were easy, we wouldn’t need you.
God bless you. Tim
Here are today’s reports from the vigil starting with Sue 7-9 am:
“It was a pretty quiet morning on the sidewalk. It was good to stand with Pastor Adam and shift buddy Amy. Pastor Adam started our time with a beautiful prayer. It was so nice to have a Pastor on the sidewalk, leading us in the litany of the Holy Spirit. It appeared that mostly workers went into planned parenthood and Pastor Adam prayed specifically for everyone who entered. We were joined by a man whose name I do not know, who comes regularly to witness and also Lauren who works close by and came to pray.”
From Ginny 9-11 am: Members of Roundhill Presbyterian Church joined Dean and I on the sidewalk for prayer and peaceful witnessing. There were 3 pastors in the group. I felt very blessed to be there today
Here are Marie and Beverly 11-1 witnessing to life and in prayer.
It was a quiet shift with a few negative pedestrians but even more positive people. Frank joined us for the last hour.
From Beth 1-3 PM: It was good to be there. As much as we pray for an end to the nightmare of abortion, it’s good that we have kind people to pray and witness at PP. Volunteer Dave categorized it as a “ministry of availability. ” He, his wife Laurie, Rose and all of us are there to be with those who need us. Laurie said that the rest is up to the Holy Spirit. So correct. Thanks to our friends from Christ Church at Grove Farm.
And Kevin from St. Michael the Archangel parish came right on time to pray for the rest of our afternoon. As a reward for being “available,” we had some nice comments from those who could see that if the need arose, we were there and those who just prayed when passing.
