Ah! The Next Letter-Writing Party

Throughout the long course of Vital Signs Ministries (over 37 years and counting) and among all of our other Christian pro-life activities, we have organized frequent letter writing parties for the purpose of spreading greater enlightenment, encouragement, and advocacy of righteous causes.

We do so because we’re convinced of 3 things: 1) We seek to be “lights of the world” through all relevant means available to us; 2) Letters make a difference; and 3) We know it’s always better to speak the truth (even through a letter) than to merely whine, curse the darkness, or surrender. 

Anyhow, the next Vital Signs letter-writing party is a special brunch edition. We’ve found this to be a popular approach and so we’re looking forward to a good turnout. The brunch will be at the Hartford home on Saturday, July 13th at 10 o’clock. And, as is always the case, the menu items will be provided as will the stationery and envelopes, the pens and stamps, and the list of potential recipients of our cards and letters.

We will also have a quick time of prayer before starting our letter-writing and a review of the pertinent information to help make your letters be as effective as possible.

Among the matters on the agenda that morning will be “thank you” notes to several governors who have signed pro-life legislation for their states; Texas Gov. Greg Abbott for signing the “Save Chick-fil-A” bill; Senator Ben Sasse and others for championing the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act; President Donald Trump for several key pro-life actions; Nebraska Family Alliance; Franklin Graham; Joni Eareckson Tada; persecuted Christians overseas; and more. 

And it will be no surprise that there’s also quite a few villainous actions that require our principled protest. So among the “bad guys” list will be Target and other businesses stores for their aggressive LGBT advocacy; Costco for a “puff piece” in their magazine about Melinda Gates; Pinterest; Cartoon Network; Benefit and Estée Lauder; the Democrat party and its candidates for president; Teen Vogue; Google and Facebook and Twitter; the mayor and police chief of Portland Oregon; and others. 

These letter-writing parties always provide a stimulating time of fellowship and an opportunity for meaningful service as we hold high the banners of Christ’s truth and justice. So come join us, won’t you? Please RSVP at 341-8886 or vitalsigns@vitalsignsministries.org
