Praying for the end of abortion and right to life is an easy thing for most of us to do. We can do it in the silence of our hearts, home and parishes and know without a doubt God is listening. But here's a question: if we are Gods hands and feet what can we do to really make a difference in our world. As part of 40 days for Life the school children and families, Religious Ed children and families are being asked to create a drawing or write a letter to lawmakers at the Wisconsin Capital that tells why life is beautiful and important, why families are important or why babies/children are special. Obviously we do not expect parents to speak to their young children about abortion but to focus on life, family. Young children can draw a picture, intermediate children can write a small letter or draw a picture and older children/adults can write a letter to convince lawmakers that every life is important and children are special. We ask every ADULT to step out of their comfort zones and write a brief or long letter focusing on ending abortion, promoting adoption, closing and defunding Planned Parenthood and encouraging places such as CareNet and Women’s Care Centers both available in Madison and surrounding areas. We want to make it clear to those who affect our laws that we believe in life from conception to natural death and we are not going away until we are heard, laws are changed and innocent children are saved. We want them to know that we also teach our children that value who will someday grow up and continue our fight for protection and the right to life. We ask that all letters and pictures are signed only with a first name and age of the child (adults do not have to add age}. We also ask that all letters and pictures are completed by Oct 16th . There is a box under the pro life table in the side lobby and the back lobby to drop them off. PLEASE consider being part of this very important endeavor. Updates to come. Goal is 300 + letters and pictures. Time to be Gods hands and feet. Lets challenge laws and change hearts.
