Pilgrimage to witness against Terri's murder...

Error message

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (James 1:27)

Dear Brothers in Christ,

Please look for a post tomorrow (Friday) morning concerning our still-tentative plans to go to Florida to provide a witness against the murder of Terri Schiavo. Our plans aren't yet firm, but we've been seeking the counsel of men we respect and we're beginning to believe that it would please the Lord and honor His Name if Christian men began to gather at the scene of Terri's impending murder. This is not to deny the need for women to support this effort, but to speak specifically to men who are followers of Jesus Christ concerning our duty to follow Righteous Job, in being a father to the afflicted and suffering:

And Job again took up his discourse and said, 2 Oh that I were as in months gone by, As in the days when God watched over me; 3 When His lamp shone over my head, And by His light I walked through darkness; 4 As I was in the prime of my days, When the friendship of God was over my tent; 5 When the Almighty was yet with me, And my children were around me; 6 When my steps were bathed in butter, And the rock poured out for me streams of oil! 7 When I went out to the gate of the city, When I took my seat in the square, 8 The young men saw me and hid themselves, And the old men arose and stood. 9 The princes stopped talking And put their hands on their mouths; 10 The voice of the nobles was hushed, And their tongue stuck to their palate. 11 For when the ear heard, it called me blessed, And when the eye saw, it gave witness of me, 12 Because I delivered the poor who cried for help, And the orphan who had no helper. 13 The blessing of the one ready to perish came upon me, And I made the widow's heart sing for joy. 14 I put on righteousness, and it clothed me; My justice was like a robe and a turban. 15 I was eyes to the blind And feet to the lame. 16 I was a father to the needy, And I investigated the case which I did not know. 17 I broke the jaws of the wicked And snatched the prey from his teeth. (Job 29:1-17)
