At a high school question and answer session a 16 year old boy said he knew it is a baby from conception but when does society (or those in authority) say it is a baby. Vera said it depended on the woman that the baby is living inside of. If she wants him, we have baby showers, grandparents make toasts, sonogram pictures are shown around, she makes a point to be healthy the entire nine months and names are chosen. He is a baby. If she doesn't want him society says that this very same baby is not a baby, but a piece of tissue, and she has the same responsibility to him as she has to the hamburger she had for lunch. The young boy was outraged and had a look o/a his face that said he saw wrong for the first time. Change will come when all the young people really see the wrong in anyone deciding for themselves who shall go on to be born.

Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 16:25 Feeding birds is special. I read recently of a person who 20 lb. bag of bird seed as a Christmas gift. Attached was "The only way you get to enjoy this gift is to give it away." Life is like feeding birds. The more we give, the more we This truth is basic to the teaching of our Master. This message of a little book by David Dunn, "Try Giving Yourself Vince Stegner introduced me to this little book during the effort in 1987. I suggest that you reflect on the following from the Dunn s book: "Never before in the history of the world has the spirit ourselves away been as needed as it is today. There is so every one of us, no matter how great or how modest our how high or humble our stations in life, can quietly do in the of our lives, to cure at least some of the ills of our troubled You and I can help. More than anything else, the world healing influence of a great surge of simple thoughtfulness heartedness. Such a surge is beyond the power of the world' or statesmen. It must start with us, as individuals. Right in out communities, we average citizens can establish the spirit and pattern of a kindlier world."

At a high school question and answer session a 16 year old boy said he knew it is a baby from conception but when does society (or those in authority) say it is a baby. Vera said it depended on the woman that the baby is living inside of. If she wants him, we have baby showers, grandparents make toasts, sonogram pictures are shown around, she makes a point to be healthy the entire nine months and names are chosen. He is a baby. If she doesn't want him society says that this very same baby is not a baby, but a piece of tissue, and she has the same responsibility to him as she has to the hamburger she had for lunch. The young boy was outraged and had a look o/a his face that said he saw wrong for the first time. Change will come when all the young people really see the wrong in anyone deciding for themselves who shall go on to be born.

Think About These Things" by Rev. Wilfred C. Hansen PASTOR AT LARGE "For whoever would save his life will lose it, and whoever life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 16:25 Feeding birds is special. I read recently of a person who 20 lb. bag of bird seed as a Christmas gift. Attached was "The only way you get to enjoy this gift is to give it away." Life is like feeding birds. The more we give, the more we This truth is basic to the teaching of our Master. This message of a little book by David Dunn, "Try Giving Yourself Vince Stegner introduced me to this little book during the effort in 1987. I suggest that you reflect on the following from the Dunn s book: "Never before in the history of the world has the spirit ourselves away been as needed as it is today. There is so every one of us, no matter how great or how modest our how high or humble our stations in life, can quietly do in the of our lives, to cure at least some of the ills of our troubled You and I can help. More than anything else, the world healing influence of a great surge of simple thoughtfulness heartedness. Such a surge is beyond the power of the world' or statesmen. It must start with us, as individuals. Right in out communities, we average citizens can establish the spirit and pattern of a kindlier world."
