Big Pro-Life Weekend in Omaha
1) A prayer vigil outside the northwest Planned Parenthood, two blocks north of Maple on 93rd Street. The prayer vigil is from 9:15-10:00. You can park in the lot of Hope Church which is just off the northwest corner of 93rd and Maple. Joining us for prayers there will be Rita Diller of Stop Planned Parenthood.
2) Immediately after the prayer meeting, Rita Diller will address pro-lifers at Hope Church. Here are details from an earlier Vital Signs post:
Rita Diller is the National Director of American Life League's Stop Planned Parenthood project.
As National Director, Rita is responsible for leading American Life League's effort against Planned Parenthood in the United States. She is the managing editor of the STOPP Report and is responsible for overseeing research on Planned Parenthood and supplying detailed information about PP to pro-lifers all across the country.
Rita serves as a consultant to many groups and shares with those fighting Planned Parenthood the successful techniques that have been developed across the country.
Rita has more than 26 years experience across the spectrum of pro-life work, including 12 years as Respect Life Director for the Diocese of Amarillo, working closely with Bishop John Yanta. While in Amarillo, she trained volunteers and established weekly prayer vigils at PP centers; challenged PP at every turn -- in the media, on the streets, at their meetings, fundraisers, educational events, in community organizations, before the city council; and educated their supporters and the community at large about the PP agenda.
At the end of the 12 year campaign to expose Planned Parenthood in the Amarillo area, 19 PP facilities had shut down and the remaining two disaffiliated from the Planned Parenthood Federation...
Rita will be with us as we conduct a prayer vigil at the Planned Parenthood abortion mill in northwest Omaha (2 blocks north of Maple on 93rd Street) on Saturday, October 1st from 9:15 to 10 AM. After the prayer vigil, Rita will join us at Hope Church (93 and Maple -- where we suggest you park for the prayer vigil as well) for a presentation about ways the Omaha Christian community can best oppose the nefarious and deadly doings of Planned Parenthood.
Please plan on joining us at the abortion facility for prayer that morning and then for coffee, donuts and an engaging, practical presentation on pro-life activism from Rita Diller. It would be great to have an idea of how many are planning to attend, so please zip us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And then 3) Sunday is Life Chain. And while it is a sad fact that most churches in the Omaha area have fumbled away this splendid opportunity to create a winsome pro-life witness to our city, not everyone has given up on the ministry of Life Chain. So, if you do not have a church presence at the Life Chain, come join Claire and I and our friends from Faith Bible Church and many others in standing on the corners of 72nd and Dodge. 2 o'clock to 3 o'clock is the time.
We hope to see you at all three events!
