Advent 2015, December 1

Christianity is pro-life to the core.  The first holiday is about a birth, the second about a resurrection. 

Pope John Paul coined the phrase “culture of death.”  To be cross-cultural is to be pro-life, in every stage. 

We can be pro-life at all times and in all stages of life, and especially at Advent, which is the celebration of a coming birth that shouldn’t have been from all human perspectives.  

This week being pro-life will be conflated in the media with being a crazy person who comes out of the woods and holds hostages in Colorado.  Don't fall for it.  Being pro-life  is to be pro-people.
