Check Out These "Light-Shining" Letters

Following up on my blog post describing a very successful letter-writing party last Tuesday evening (details here). I'll print off a few samples of what was written in that ministry event. 

Perhaps it will encourage you to write a few!

Dear Justice Thomas,

It is with a grateful heart that I write to thank you for voting to overturn Roe v Wade.  This has been a long time coming and is well past time, due to no fault of yours.  Your tireless advocacy for life and for righteousness is very appreciated. The violence that has been directed towards your family and the harassment of your wife over or by the January 6th circus is unconscionable. We pray for your protection and good health and many more good years before you go to receive your great reward for your work.

Regards, JM

Dear Justice Barrett,

Thank you so much for standing for life. I would like to encourage you to stand firm and know that prayers are being said for you and your family. You have one of the most important jobs in our country.  Please continue to work for the best decisions for the people in our great country.

Sincerely, J&JL

Justice Amy Coney Barrett,

As Mordecai said to his cousin/niece Esther, “Who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this.”  We have prayed for you and for your family, for healthy, wisdom protection. Congratulations that you are eternally known for voting to overturn Roe v Wade.  It was such an affront to women and such bad law. Thank you for standing in the gap to protect vulnerable women and their children.

Much work still to be done but your work on the bench is great and historic and significant, thank you!!

Regards, JM

Dear Justice Gorsuch,

Just a quick but deeply appreciative note to thank you for your defense of the Constitution, your defense of moral and scientific fact, and your defense of the sanctity of preborn life in voting to reverse Roe v. Wade.  What an opportunity this now represents for America!  We’re praying God will bless, protect, and keep you on course!


Justice Kavanaugh,

Praying for you and your wife daily. Be strong, sir; all this temporary.

Bound for Glory, AN

Dear Justice Thomas,

I have written earlier to thank you for your noble service to America, especially in your defense of “original intent” in Constitutional matters.  Your brilliant defense of the sanctity of life over the years has finally bore the most wonderful and amazing of fruits; namely, the reversal of Roe v. Wade and we thank God for helping you stay the course against such extreme (though unjust and even irrational) opposition.  We will be forever grateful to you.


P.S. Our next Book Brunch deals with "Created Equal" come September, but we’ve started it early.  It's terrific!

Dear Justice Roberts,

Your failure to vote to reverse Roe v. Wade was a grave disappointment.  Of course, you have disappointed so much of America many times before with your lukewarm ethics, your compromised values, and your sloppy decisions.  But to fail to finally get this – of all things – straight…that takes the cake!


This next letter was sent to several companies
that have been pro-abortion zealotry.

Dear Disney, 

Just a quick word of disappointment for your cruel zealotry regarding the dismemberment and poisoning of reborn boys and girls through abortion. Indeed, your company's support of unlimited abortion (without the slightest regard to the little innocent child which will be abortion’s victim)…well, that’s both sad and desperately mean-spirited.  However, for your company to then go further by the active enablement of that horrendous violence is beyond the pale.

We are but two of many who will also express our disappointment with your cold-hearted company in our consumer decisions -- as well as passing the word to others.

Dear Kroger's,

I have been a long-time Bakers shopper.  I have my favorite store.  I know where everything is located.  I use my Bakers Plus card and get money off my fuel.  I have ordered special cakes from the bakery. However, I am so disappointed that you have been so vocal in your support for abortion.  Why?  Do you support the employees that choose life for their babies?  If so, you certainly aren’t vocal about that. The best thing a business should do is be the best business it can and stay out of politics! From today on, I will begin begin shopping elsewhere.


Dear Samaritan's Purse,

I am amazed and delighted to see the work you are doing for hurting people the world over. You send me a prayer booklet which I use every day.  So many lives are being touched and transformed by the work you are doing for Jesus. May God continue to bless the work He has called you to.


Dear Don Bacon,

I was very disappointed to learn that you voted for the Respect for Marriage Act, which affirms and further encourages same-sex marriage. This is a great assault on our Creator’s definition on marriage.  I know you have made statements about being a Christian, but how can a Christian stand for something our God hates? Our culture is falling away from what God calls good and is embracing destructive behavior. Prayerfully you will fear the Lord as you lead.


Dear President Biden,

I was shocked beyond belief when you were defending – by word and policy – those citizens to the lawmakers who were defending Roe v. Wade, in spite of the Supreme Court overturning it.  Shame on you for claiming to be an active member of the Catholic Church and defending the killing of innocent children from abortion when you are fully aware of their stand for pro-life!  As former President Reagan said, “I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born.”

Pope John Paul II, “America, you are beautiful and blessed.  The ultimate test of your greatness is the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless.  If you want equal justice for all and true freedom and lasting peace, then America, defend life.”

“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.  Therefore, choose life, that you and your offspring may live.”  Deuteronomy 30:19

I beg you as President that you seek God’s truth on the abortion issue.

Sincerely, DP

Dear Police Chief Schmaderer,

Vital Signs Ministries is holding a quarterly letter-writing party and, among the other political and moral topics we address in our letters, we like to thank local heroes who risk so much to keep us safe.  We are greatly appreciative of all of you and the “Blue” do!

( Signed by all present)

Dear Fire Chief Olsen,

Vital Signs Ministries is hosting our quarterly letter-writing tonight and, among the political and moral issues we tackle in our letters, we also like to send along our thanks for local heroes who serve us so well…like you guys!  So please know the fire and rescue heroes are dearly appreciated by those signing below.

(Signed by all present)

Dear Attorney General Garland,

Among the most egregious derelictions of your duty has been your failure to actively, effectively protect Supreme Court Justices as stated in U.S. Title 18, Section 1507.  Please, before someone is hurt, do your job!


Dear Franklin Graham,

I want to thank you for the wonderful work you and your ministry are doing.  You inspire me with “love and good deeds.” Thank you also that you always share the Gospel wherever you go.  That is primary.  That is the basic message everyone needs to know.  Being forgiven and knowing Jesus is the starting point for good for us all.  Franklin, you and your ministry are often in our thoughts and prayers.  Thank you for your perseverance.  (I Cor. 15:58)

Sincerely, LS
