30 Years and Counting. How Has Vital Signs Survived?
So many of the local pro-life groups that dotted the American landscape in the 1980’s have disappeared altogether – even several of the national ones. And remember how VSM started as a Christian Action Council chapter back in 1982? There were eventually over a hundred active chapters in the U.S. but, alas, we know of no CAC chapters that are yet around.
Why has Vital Signs survived? With all of the coarsening of American society, the compassion fatigue, the disillusionment, the declining economy, the general failure of evangelical leadership (especially the clergy) to effectively engage the life issues – how has Vital Signs managed to navigate all of the troubled waters and stay on course?
To find out the answer to those questions, read this month's Vital Signs letter over at our website.
