While overturning Roe v. Wade will not prevent abortions, it will leave it to the states to decide if they will allow it.  We should approach questions we may face with the attitude of “What would Jesus do?”  The pregnancy has already occurred, whether it is current or in the distant past does not matter.  What does matter is how we, as a Church, respond.  Many people think the Church is the organization or the buildings.  The Church is those of us that are members of Christ’s body.  How will we handle this topic?  Wil...

Seton Honorees Announced

The commitment of ...
