This Giving Tuesday, we will be pursuing an ambitious end of year goal of $500,000 for our end-of-year campaign, which starts today.
We are planning a major expansion and adding five new staff positions to really position ourselves for even greater impact on the legislature, the church, and the culture.
It is important that we remember the past, our traditions as a people, and even history itself. There are many in society who wish to “cancel” the past and any parts of our history that they don’t like or think are bad. As Christians we should be reminded that remembering the past is a command from Scripture. God often repeated His laws to the Israelites and reminded them of the ways He delivered them from the Egyptians. He had to remind them over and over again of where they had been and how He delivered them because they were a stubborn people.But in the end, God commanded this because it made them thankful. And so remembering the past is a part of Thanksgiving. So-called “Cancel Culture” flies in the face of this truth.
