The Difference You Make

As we gather to celebrate Thanksgiving this week, we want you to know, how grateful we are for you.

This story illustrates the difference you’ve made in helping to create a new Christian response to abortion.

“I had an abortion about a year and a half ago. But I didn’t tell anyone in my family or at my church, out of fear.”

A young woman started the table discussion at a recent ProGrace event with this introduction. She showed great courage, as there were two male pastors and a pregnancy organization director at her table.

What floored me most was what she continued to share:

“So I’m here today, because I want to start the discussion at our church. I don’t want anyone else to feel like they have to make this decision in isolation. I want us to start talking about it so no one has to go through what I did.”

I have been working in this issue for 14 years, and the only thing I’ve seen that can:

  • create this environment of safety so a woman can tell her story and then,
  • foster her courage to approach her church about their response to abortion is… Grace. 

God is so good. He’s on the move. I was so inspired meeting this young woman, because I’ve never seen anything like this (but I believe it will start happening more and more). This is the difference you make!
