I read the message you gave recently at the "United Methodist Taskforce on Abortion and Sexuality" event; it's posted at: http://www.ucmpage.org/articles/swheeler.html
I understand the point you made (so well) in your message, and it has made me ponder. Thank you.
However, could I go further (into specifics) with you? Let me ask you about what you challenged Christians to do, as you said:
Help me out, where are we, as Christians not doing enough of the above? Obviously, I know that we could ALWAYS do more in general, but let's get specific. What avenues do you suggest that we need to follow which we aren't now, or which avenues which we ARE following do you suggest that we need to increase in our efforts?
Your comments make clear that you believe that Christians are falling short. What specific guidance do you have for us? What should a Christian do as an individual, and what should a single, local church do?
The sad news is that the folks at Lifewatch.org had a program called the Sheltering Church Program that required and directed real Christian faith demonstrated in work. Few took advantage of the program and it was laid to rest as extinct.
I have preserved it to answer your question and resurrect the wonderfully challenging guide to Christian response to this terrible crises of death by abortion in our culture.
