Thank you to all who participated in our Winter Life Event! It truly was an educational experience for all. Barry Sheets shed light on the dangers of the Living Will and emphasized that one needs a Medical Durable Power of Attorney by a trusted person in order to be protected when one is unable to make medical decisions for themselves. Below are some important resources for pro-life end of life decisions:

 Dear Lord,

Please have mercy on our land for the slaughter of the nearly 60,000,000 babies since January 22, 1973. Help us Lord, to find the straight and narrow path to a culture of life that honors You and carries out Your will. Lead us all to repentance, for any sin is evil. Help those who have participated in the sin of abortion to experience a conversion of heart. Fuel those who give witness for life with humility, mercy and compassion towards those they encounter who are in need of help. Embolden our priests, pastors, ministers and government leaders to speak the truth that all human life is worthy of protection since every person  has been created in Your image and likeness. Let us all be more courageous and willing to be active in the pro-life movement. We ask these things in Your name, Jesus Christ.
