"It's A Matter of Life..." by Denver Sallee

Increasingly Christians are assailed with the message from the God-less culture "stay out of the public square and to keep your thoughts about marriage, religious freedom, and the dignity of human life to yourselves." The reality is society really will miss us if we are cowed into a privatized faith that keeps religion safely inside the four walls of our churches. Outside of church walls America has plenty of Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, and Catholic hospitals, food kitchens, rescue missions, adoption agencies, and disaster relief organizations  but have you ever seen any similar organizations run by Buddhists, atheist, or New Age adherents?  After laying out exactly what He expected us to do in Matthew 25, Christ sounded the "the starting pistol" in Matthew 28 as He commanded, "Go therefore..." and that is what His Church on earth  must continue to do.

Prophetic Words by Paul Harvey 

“If I were the devil, I wouldn’t be happy until I had seized the ripest apple on the tree—Thee. So I’d set about however necessary to take over the United States. I’d subvert the churches first—I would begin with a campaign of whispers. With the wisdom of a serpent, I would whisper to you as I whispered to Eve: “Do as you please.” “Do as you please.” To the young, I would whisper, “The Bible is a myth.” I would convince them that man created God instead of the other way around. I would confide that what is bad is good, and what is good is “square”. And the old, I would teach to pray. I would teach them to pray after me, ‘Our Father, which art in Washington…’ And then I’d get organized. I’d educate authors on how to lurid literature exciting, so that anything else would appear dull and uninteresting. I’d threaten TV with dirtier movies and vice versa. I’d pedal narcotics to whom I could. I’d sell alcohol to ladies and gentlemen of distinction. I’d tranquilize the rest with pills. If I were the devil I’d soon have families that war with themselves, churches that war that themselves, and nations that war with themselves; until each in its turn was consumed. And with promises of higher ratings I’d have mesmerizing media fanning the flame. If I were the devil I would encourage schools to refine young intellects, and neglect to discipline emotions—just let those run wild, until before you knew it, you’d have to have drug sniffing dogs and metal detectors at every schoolhouse door.  Within a decade I’d have prisons overflowing, I’d have judges promoting pornography—soon I could evict God from the courthouse, and then the schoolhouse, and then from the houses of Congress. And in His own churches I would substitute psychology for religion, and deify science. I would lure priests and pastors into misusing boys and girls, and church money. If I were the devil I’d make the symbols of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle. If I were the devil I’d take from those, and who have, and give to those wanted until I had killed the incentive of the ambitious. What do you bet I could get whole states to promote gambling as the way to get rich? I would question against extremes and hard work, and Patriotism, and moral conduct. I would convince the young that marriage is old-fashioned, that swinging more fun, that what you see on the TV is the way to be. And thus I could undress you in public, and I could lure you into bed with diseases for which there is no cure. In other words, if I were to devil I’d keep on doing on what he’s doing. Paul Harvey, good day.”

Great news!!!!! The Hands of Hope is getting re-energized! It is a network of pro-life and social service agencies interested in creating a life affirming environment for Northeast Ohio.

We held our first meeting on March 31, 2015. Many of you were unable to attend, so we are planning a second meeting for you to attend. We ask that you come prepared with the following:


 ~ Brief explanation of the organization you represent. (Feel free to bring brochures, logo or anything else that helps describe your organization.)


 ~ Ideas for Hands of Hope to discuss and brainstorm  regarding ways to promote ourselves, network with each other and have fellowship.


 ~ What you would like to see on our developing website.

Out of last month’s meeting came a planning committee and getting a website in place for participating organizations to place their website links. We hope to have it up and running by June. There was discussion about hosting a movie night whereby we invite the public to attend. The Hands of Hope organizations would have tables available to share their organizations wares, services, etc. with the people that attend.


 We are planning the next meeting for Friday, May 22 at the Cornerstone of Hope, 5905 Brecksville Rd., Independence, OH 44131. We held our last meeting from 7:30am-9:30 am. However, we are open to suggestions…..we do know that 8am would be the earliest since that is the earliest time that is convenient for Cornerstone of Hope.

 Please let us know what time would work for you in the morning:
 1.8:00 am
 2.8:30 am
 3. 9:00 am

The meeting generally runs about 2 hours (at most).

Please RSVP at lcrtl@ncweb.com with your preferred time by MAY 8, 2015.

We will contact you with the final time.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
