The "Save a Life in 2008" Seminar
Challenges Southern California Christians
To Rescue at Least One Child from Abortion
BUENA PARK, January 18-Christians throughout Southern California are being given a unique challenge to put some feet on their pro-life views. The pro-life organization Crusade for Life is asking every Christian to put saving at least one unborn child from abortion on their "to do" list for 2008.
To train Christians for this task, a free seminar called "Save a Life in 2008" will be held on Saturday, March 1, 2008, from 9am to 12noon at the First Southern Baptist Church of Buena Park, located at 6801 Western Ave. in Buena Park.
The seminar will feature Pastor Neil Travisano who will show participants how they can make an impact for Jesus Christ through prayer and simple ways of reaching out to abortion-minded pregnant women. "Look at the parking lot of abortion clinics in our communities -they are jammed packed every Saturday morning, "said Patsy Dubriel of Crusade for Life, who is organizing the event. "If a large number of Christians made it a priority to save even just one life from abortion this year, we believe the scale in Southern California would dramatically tip in favor of life."
The organizers of "Save a Life in 2008' see the goal as not just physically rescuing preborn children, but saving souls as well. "When Christians pray and save lives, people are brought to the Lord, and generations are changed for Him," Dubriel added.
Dubriel noted that while many Christians vote pro-life, sidewalk counseling and prayer at abortion clinics are missing parts in the lives of Believers. "This type of ministry gives you an awesome opportunity to touch so many lives in a positive way. Come to this free seminar and get encouraged that someone will be still be alive because what God did through you this year," she said.
"Voting for a pro-life candidate for president is great and will help save babies in the long run, but there are also unborn children whose lives are hanging in the balance right now - in our neighborhoods. Jesus wants us to pause from our self-centered lives and go help them, like the Good Samaritan did. Let's not be so distracted in our lives or consider pro-life someone else's duty. Whether single, married, young, old, male or female, those who know the Lord are needed to be that loving, peaceful voice of hope to a scared woman in trouble. Come out and see what we are about on March 1."
Thus says the LORD: "Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place.
- Jeremiah 22:3
