Family Seder Meal

The Jewish people gather as a family to celebrate the Passover each year.  The meal they share is called a Seder.  Within the Seder, the people recall the faithfulness of God throughout human history to this very day.  This beautiful ceremony is part of our Jewish roots and can teach us about God's faithfulness to us as well.

Abby Johnson Testifies

Abby Johnson worked in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas for 8 years.  One day, she was asked to assist an abortion doctor during a procedure.  She left that day and has spent her life proclaiming the truth of abortion and the lies of Planned Parenthood.  She testified in Kentucky this February and explains a first trimester abortion.  See her testimony here.
