Hope Church Draws Attention to the Bible

This Wednesday at 12:00 noon, Claire and I will be at Hope Church here in Omaha to participate in an informal party to celebrate and dedicate the new Project Moses structure that has been placed on the southeast corner of the church property facing 93rd Street. I saw it this weekend. The monument holds the 10 Commandments on the north side and the Beatitudes on the south side. It's neat for it represents not only a significant witness for the neighborhood and an impressive reminder for the members and friends of Hope Church, but also an effective exhortation to other congregations to pursue similar public demonstrations of their Christian faith.

As I suggested, the party isn't an elaborate affair -- just coffee and sandwiches -- but there will be time to meet pastor Don Moore and the director of Project Moses, Joe Worthing. And, of course, you can see the new monument and join in a few prayers for the Lord to protect it and use it for His glory.

Following the luncheon a few of us will be going down the block to have a few prayers also at the Planned Parenthood abortion mill. We will leave our cars parked there in the lot at Hope Church. In fact, that's where the pro-lifers (evangelical and Catholic) always park their cars when they are praying and sidewalk counseling down the street. The Hope Church pastor and his congregation hold strong pro-life convictions too and have been very supportive and helpful in the cause over the years.

That's why I was honored to have been invited to lead a prayer at this dedication ceremony on Wednesday and to be encouraged by Pastor Don to invite a few friends along. So maybe we'll see you there. The address of the church is 93rd and Binney; in other words, just 1/2 a block north of Maple on 93rd -- west side of the street.
