In a week that revealed once again the Great Divide of the United States on the issue of abortion, Sara Groves will present a concert to benefit Amazing Grace Adoption/Orphans Care, a ministry/service to help place unexpected or unwanted children in loving homes where godly parents can nurture them and grow them up in the presence and love of Christ.
The debacle between the Susan Komen Foundation and Planned Parenthood received very little intelligent treatment in the news this week. The former raises funds to support research for the cure for breast cancer, while the latter spends its money both to give counsel and when possible provide abortions to pregnant women. In other words, one seeks to preserve life and the other seeks to destroy life.
Planned Parenthood, for example, counseled 841 women in all its clinics in 2010 to put their unborn child up for adoption when it was born while aborting 329, 445 unborn babies. When B&H Publishing entered into a partnership with Komen to print pink Bibles to help in gathering funds for breast cancer research, they had no idea that some of the funds were being channeled into the coffers of Planned Parenthood. As soon as they discovered this amazing disparity between organizations bent on either life-saving research and life-taking practice, they immediately withdrew those Bibles and ate the losses rather than continue to support anything remotely connected with abortion.
The voices of those who love God and the life He creates need to be heard above the media hype which ignores the reality that well over half of our nation opposes abortion and supports all that preserves and protects life.
In addition to the fine work of Christian counseling services around the nation which offer truth to women with difficult decisions regarding their pregnancies, there are many wonderful agencies set up to help the overwhelming number of families who want children but have not been able to adopt because so many are aborted before they ever see the light of day that there are far fewer babies than parents who long for them.
So now we as Christians get to step up and provide support for agencies which work hard to make adoption possible so that the little ones unwanted by some can be placed with those who have been longing and praying for the privilege of having them in their home.
This benefit concert in Raleigh on Saturday night, February 11 gives us a chance to enjoy the musical talents of Sara Groves and know that the proceeds will support the work of a great organization! If you are going to be in town, I highly recommend that you come and give your voice and your gifts to support a work that values life and loves seeing little ones placed with families who will give them every opportunity to find the life they were created to live–to live for the glory of their Creator God!
Hope you enjoy another Sara Groves video!
Tickets for the concert at Fletcher Opera Hall in downtown Raleigh can be purchased at agadoptions.org or ticketmaster.com. See you there! Cathy and I wouldn’t miss it!
