Why we March Print E-mail
Written by Marie Bowen   

MFLphone-photos-329webEvery year on (or close to) the anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision which legalized abortion in America, hundreds of thousands of Americans board buses in the cold and dark of early morning and ride to Washington D.C. for the annual March for Life.

Presbyterians Protecting Life

Names have meaning

There are many biblical examples of times when God gave an individual a new name at a critical turning point in their journey with God: Abram became Abraham when God made a covenant with him to give him offspring and land.
