Several months ago I mentioned to a friend that we had no Orthodox pro life presence here in our area. We have little Orthodox presense anyway, but this friend is part of a new antiochian parish that has started. I am so thrilled for this!
Anyway, she mentioned it to her priest's wife (matushka?) and we all got together and have invented a pro life rally. It's to take place on January 21st.
We have a large baptist contingent here that travels to DC for the march for Life, and has their own home for unwed mothers and such. but not all churches will get involved with the infamous Falwell and not all women's needs are met by the home (it's more for teens I believe)
Anyway, we are kicking this off ourselves and it seems to be moving ahead. Please pray I can find funding for the pro life bracelets, as I really need to get them here NOW.
I already have so much else on my plate with Heather, but this is a welcome 'distraction' I think. Pray that we can minister to women in our area and be a blessing.
