Monday musing: The other pro-life election issue

As you pray over tomorrow's momentous election, remember Massachusetts. Voters there are deciding on a proposal to legalize physician-assisted suicide. They would be the third state to do so (behind Oregon and Washington).

But there are a chorus of influential voices in opposition:
Don't, however, be lulled into complacency! Advocates of euthanasia are persistent and will, no doubt, bring it up for a a vote again. And again and again. So pray!

This might also be a good time for more churches to look into offering LIFT, our program of respite care for people with chronic or terminal illnesses and their families. If we can help your church get started, email or give us a call: 1-800-968-6086.

Finally, a few words from Hosea 10 this election-eve:

          Sow with a view to righteousness,
                Reap in accordance with kindness;
                        Break up your fallow ground,
                              For it is time to seek the Lord
                        Until He comes to rain righteousness on you.
                You have plowed wickedness, you have reaped injustice,
          You have eaten the fruit of lies.

Postscript: A couple other last minute pre-election reads:
