Contact Suzanne Crotty for more information at 433-6647. Rally for Life As we approach the 42nd anniversary of Roe vs Wade, we see that our decades-long endurance has born good fruit: Since the late 90s there is a 30% reduction in abortions; the American public now decidedly tilts pro-life, especially young people; state legislatures are saving thousands of lives by passing Women’s Right to Know laws, and Parental Involvement legislation; more regulated than ever, abortion clinics across the land are closing down by the dozens. But the fight is hardly over. There are still over 1 million abortions annually. The specter of legal assisted suicide rises in many states. With all this in mind, the leadership team of Sonoma County Pro Life once again cordially invites you to participate in our annual Rally for Life. It will be held at the Courthouse Square in Santa Rosa on Sunday, January 25th, from 2:00pm – 4:00pm. Come out and be a witness for the Sanctity of Life. All are welcome. There will be noted speakers, great music, and effective prayer. We have miles to go before we sleep.

Ambrosi Barbieri Elliff SERVER 8AM WATCHING FOR THE MESSIAH Today’s Gospel story of John and his disciples seeing and following Jesus sounds so simple and casual, it’s easy to miss the significant acts of faith that are made. John points to Jesus: “Look,” he says, “there is the Lamb of God.” John’s faith in Jesus is evident, so evident that John’s disciples immediately leave his side to follow this Jesus. The two disciples make their own act of faith. They follow Jesus, spend time with him, and are quick to spread the good news of their discovery: “We have found the Messiah.” It is easy to forget that the expectations of generations, the hopes of many ages of faithful people were being fulfilled in these simple acts of faith. The Lamb of God, the Messiah, foretold by the prophets, had finally come. Nearly everyone among the Jewish people was watching for the Messiah back then; who in our own society watches for signs of the presence of the Messiah today?
