Our next meeting is coming up fast! Here's what on tap:

March for Life 2010 - Limited Time Offer!

The March for Life is a Pro-Life rally held on the anniversary of the Supreme Court's infamous decision known as Roe v Wade. You can read about their founding and much more on their website. Here's a teaser:"Late in October 1973, grassroots prolife leaders became concerned that January 22, 1974, might come and go without properly memorializing the Supreme Court's infamous abortion decisions...No established right-to-life organization was prepared to undertake the planning, financial and operational responsibilities for a high impact prolife March on the U.S. Capitol. But, grassroots prolifers wanted to march!"
We are planning to attend the 2010 March for Life, which is being held on Thursday and Friday, January 21st and 22nd. Travel to Washington is provided by bus on a first come first serve basis. So the quicker you respond the better.

As you can tell there are many more details to iron out, so check back often for updates.

UPDATE:
We only have room for a few more on the bus. Check back for more details soon.

The October Meeting - "What does God say about abortion?"

The next GenJ Club meeting will be here before you know it. In fact it's a little less than twenty-four hours from now. We'll be meeting 1-3 at the Panera Bread in Avon (see left sidebar for details). This meeting will be more of a discussion than a formal meeting. Please bring your Bible and computer and be ready to discover what God says concerning abortion.

September Meeting -- The Personal Side of the Abortion Debate

Our featured speaker Machelle Montgomery, a woman who lived through the guilt and heartache of an abortion, will share her powerful and moving story. Today, the grace of God allows her to overcome the trauma of abortion and empowers her to help other women (and men) affected by this “choice.” Join us for the account of a woman changed by the love of God, Who alone can take something "intended to harm, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives." (Genesis 50:20)

Special speaker: Kimberly Lowery, HBHE student and first place winner in the Indiana Right to Life contest, presents the speech she will deliver at the Annual Indiana Right to Life Fall Banquet on September 15th.


This special event is sponsored by the students of our local Generation Joshua Club, kicking off a year of involvement in Right to Life (R2L) issues. During the upcoming school year our group will study R2L issues, tackling topics relevant to students such as what actually occurs during an abortion. During the 2010 Indiana Legislative Session our GenJ club will focus on bills and legislation relating to the right to life.

Must See TV

Hello GenJ members. R0b3rt R. here. In light of our next meeting’s discussion topic, I thought viewing this Fox News TV special would be appropriate.

Fox News just released a special entitled “Escape from Hamas.” The special focuses on Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of a founding member of Hamas, who rejects Hamas and Islam in favor of Christianity. You can see the show here. Fox News hasn’t posted the special on its Hulu account yet but when they do it will be preferable to view it there.

Current Events Update: Actions and Attitudes

Action: How did the people vote? Take a look to see why, when so few Indiana counties were blue, the state turned blue.

Attitudes: What kind of attitude did President Elect Obama take to Washington four years ago? How did it affect the election? A recent article by Bill Sammon highlights some of Obama's first meeting with President Bush.

Attitude: How will Obama's interpretation of America and its recent past influence his presidency? While Obama has been an exceedingly liberal senator, he has run his campaign as a moderate using buzzwords such as "hope" and "change." However, in his victory speech Obama seemed to some to be speaking about our nation with a negative attitude. Do we know what his real attitude is?
