Yes, another 40 Days for Life post. The only way to witness for life? Hardly. Here, now, in progress, committed to peace, in solidarity with people around the world? Definitely. Here are a few recent 40DFL posts and links you might have missed. Two weeks left in this campaign, by the way. That’s a hint.

  • Check out “The God you pray to doesn’t exist“, a post from Stephen Scaer of the leadership team in Manchester, NH’s campaign.
  • I missed the midpoint rally in Manchester on October 14, but 80 people didn’t. Eighty people!┬áThe photo with this post was taken at that event by the 40DFL-Manchester team, showing a few of the participants on the sidewalk outside Planned Parenthood’s Pennacook Street office.
  • FYI, print out this handy list of pregnancy help agencies in the Manchester area – another local 40DFL resource.
  • From the same web page: prayer prompts.
  • Closing rally for the Manchester campaign: Monday evening, November 2, 7:00-8:00 p.m. at the old school (Cartier St.) on the grounds of Ste. Marie Church. More info and RSVP details here. Guest speaker is Pastor Garrett Lear, most recently seen knocking the Governor and Council for a figurative loop when he gave the opening prayer (at Councilor Kenney’s invitation) at the August 5 meeting where PP’s contract was denied. That was fun.
  • While there is no 40DFL campaign on the Seacoast this fall, a group of pro-life New Hampshirites from Holy Rosary parish in Rochester and St. Leo’s in Gonic┬áhave committed to peaceful prayerful witness in front of the Lovering Center in Greenland on Sundays through November 8, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
  • A member of the national 40DFL team recently visited the Haverhill, Massachusetts campaign. Read how one man’s commitment has inspired others.

Concurrent with but separate from the 40 Days for Life campaign: And Then There Were None, a nationwide ministry to abortion workers who want to leave the industry, is having a crowdfunding campaign. More than 180 people have already moved on to new jobs with assistance from ATTWN, and three more workers contacted ATTWN just last week. This is a growing ministry. Lend a hand.
