Our "Black Pastors And Wives" Conference Was Awesome!
In A Word:Transformational! Or the process by which deep structures are converted …
Our "Black Pastors and Wives" Conference was described by all of the attendees as: "Transformational!" and "Life Changing!" This conference employed a strategy that hasn't been used since the mid 1800's when Harriet Tubman (an escaped slave and a devout Christian) built the underground railroad and rescued about seventy (70) slaves (family and friends) in approximately thirteen (13) trips to Maryland during a ten (10) year period (1850-1860).1Harriet Tubman rescued slaves she could trust (i.e., family and friends), because it was too dangerous for her to go places where she did not know people or the landscape.2 Like Harriet Tubman, we too will work with Black leadership we can trust and in places where we know the landscape is conservative with a biblical worldview.
Our Objectives Our modern day version of the underground railroad will:
Expose the physical reality of the abortion procedure itself and its genocidal impact in Black America today.
Reveal the "Civil Rights" legacy of the Black Pro-Life movement in America.
Address the need for strictly confidential, non-judgmental, personal and compassionate healing programs, with the understanding that the number one (#1) reason Black leadership rejects the Pro-Life movement, is that Black leadership is post-abortive.
Teach our young people that sexual purity for Christians includes keeping your heart, mind and body, holy for the purposes of God and for the future spouse God may bring into your life.
Protect our Pastors by sharing several ways to get involved in the Pro-Life movement safely and schedule an "on site" follow up meeting with each Pastor to help each leader establish a Pro-Life ministry in their church.
Working Together We must have a sense of urgency to do all we can, while we can …
History teaches us that the success of this strategy depended upon Black and White Americans working together.3 During the late 1850s, Harriet Tubman spoke at several anti-slavery meetings, in churches, and abolitionists home, where she told her audiences about the trail from Maryland to freedom in Canada.4Harriet Tubman also provided detailed instructions to trusted others so they too could help others find their way to freedom on their own.5Isn't it past time we work together. Isn't it time to build a modern day version of the underground railroad.
Each conference costs $30,000. Our goal is to hold three (3) to four (4) "Black Pastors and Wives" conferences a year. We must have a sense of urgency to do all we can, while we can. With the window of opportunity the new administration in the White House affords us to reach deeper into Black America and save lives, we simply cannot employ the common "once a year" conference format. Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ said it best in the Gospel of John 9:4: "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work."
Over the years, Harriet Tubman added her own connections, trusted friends and colleagues to the underground railroad. In the process, Harriet Tubman worked with leaders from state to state, developing deep and lasting friendships with many Black and White abolitionists who financed her rescue missions. The word "abolitionist" was first recorded in the 1830 to 1840 historical time frame.6 It described (especially prior to the Civil War) a person who advocated or supported the abolition of slavery in the United States.7Today, Lori and I want to build a modern day version of Harriet Tubman's underground railroad. Together, Lori and I want to work with like minded people, who want to join us, working as a team to abolish abortion on demand in America. We all know that Black and White American's working together, is how abortion on demand in America got started. We also know, that Black and White American's, working together, is the only way to end it. There's only one question now left on the table. And that is: Won't you help us?
