Across the street… Sadness and some hope

“A society will be judged on the basis of how it treats its weakest members and among the most vulnerable are surely the unborn and the dying.”  A great moral hero of the twentieth century once said that.

This is the scene across the street from The King’s Fellowship, or least the building where we gather to worship. Each pink or blue flag (100,000 of them) represents an aborted child in Canada.  The organization putting on the display was well represented in the park by a friendly, joyful handful of folks who stood ready to engage in conversation any who came by.

The presence of so many flags was an experience unto itself; somewhat like standing in front of a Rothko painting. I was struck with sadness at the number of human, unborn lives who will never get a chance to be born.  And I was also filled with hope that our collective conscience can be pricked and this could change.  Hope also because even if it does not change soon or even in my lifetime, there are those compassionate, courageous, and stubborn enough to not let this issue go forgotten.

Let’s pray for those least able to speak for themselves.
Let’s help to remove the burden of unwanted pregnancy.
Let’s help to foster a culture which values each and every human life.
Let’s care more about what is right, than we do about public opinion.
Let’s ask for mercy for our country.
