Yesterday I wrote about the burden of abortion. You can read that HERE if you missed it.
I mentioned that I wanted to present a couple of options.
OPTION 1: Help us give out the "180 Movie" DVD.
Many small groups have been on a break before the final tri-mester starts this next week. But many have been meeting during the break, and those who met a couple of weeks ago watched a video called "180" about abortion. It was the week when I preached on birth control. We thought having them discuss the ultimate "birth control" (abortion) would be a good topic.
The videos we purchased and had groups watch had quite an impact. Many groups (including mine) ended the video with the thought of "what can we do?" One small group has started a movement to get the movie into the hands of every attender of Northridge. To do that, we need to raise $1000. Attenders of Northridge can watch the video, show it to others, and even pass it along to those who need to think differently about abortion. This video is the best anti-abortion argument I've ever seen. I think it makes a great, convincing argument.
If you want to help us raise the $1000 to pass out this video – you can talk to Scott Bixby, your small group leader or me about it. Some groups are giving "together" to do it as a group project. You also can give using an envelope that will be at the info desk the next couple of Sundays. Put a check or cash in the envelope and turn it in to the info desk or the offering basket.
OPTION 2: Support your local Pro-Life organization by donating or walking.
For us in Rochester, that is CompassCare (click on the name for their website). This is a good time to talk about this because they are raising funds for their "Vision Walk" – which is a fund raiser for their ministry. I have confidence that CompassCare is making a difference in women's lives in Rochester when it comes to abortion. You can support CompassCare by supporting a couple in our church who are doing the Vision Walk. Matt & Belinda Sones are raising funds HERE.
Or if you choose to get even more involved in the Vision Walk – you can participate in the walk on May 19th. You can receive a fundraising packet by emailing Matt Sones here: [email protected] There is more about the Walk on Facebook: click HERE.
Those are two small ways to make a difference. I'm sure there are other ways too. But these are two current possibilities. Do you have other suggestions? Until you figure out a better way to fight abortion in our country, would you consider joining me in one or both of these two options?
