"That's Crazy Business!"
Our youngest grandson, Ransom, visited us over the Christmas holidays. He is 2 1/2. At some point he used the phrase, "that's crazy business!" It struck a chord with me, perhaps because it more or less describes my life as PPL's Executive Director right now. It's busy, exciting, overwhelming, and hopeful as we seek to follow God's lead into a new, more relational focus on equipping leaders for Christo-centric ministry that leads to life.  

Transitions, while times of excitement and hope, demand creative energy, time for thoughtful, intentional planning, and can throw a good measure of chaos into daily organizational routines. In other words, "crazy business" happens especially in January--already the busiest month for pro-life organizations.

Bottom line--no original articles for this newsletter, not much I can tell you yet about our new direction, but please stay with us!  I think you are going to want to be a part of what God has in store for PPL in 2017! In the meantime I've posted links below to some of the best resources and articles I've found this month. I hope you will find them inspiring and useful.
Presbyterians Pro-Life is pleased to introduce a new worship resource: monthly images for use as Power Point slides in worship, as social media posts, or for inclusion in church bulletins and newsletters. Find the images on our website and the PPL Facebook page
PPL invites your church to raise a distinctively Presbyterian and Reformed voice for life on Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, and throughout the year. PPL's 2017 bulletin insert proclaims, "God is the Lord of Life!" and is deliberately undated so that you may use it on any Sunday.
