Hubby and I took a trip to Wisconsin this weekend. If you head up 39 and cut through Belvidere to avoid the Rockford traffic, good news. Wisconsin has resurfaced their stretch of Highway 76 to Clinton.
In Illinois, instead of fixing the roads they put up signs. We saw a few saying “Bump”. More said “Rough Road Ahead”. Maybe what’s left of the gas tax after paying off government “friends” can fix some of them. If you missed that story, see it here: https://blnnews.com/2019/07/17/four-bs-and-an-r/
39 southbound narrows to 1 lane in 3 places. Around Dekalb the back-up of vehicles when we headed both directions was MILES long. We wasted at least 1/2 hour coming home because people evidently can’t keep moving and merging. Heading north wasn’t a problem.
Part of 39 heading north from Normal has been resurfaced. It ends around ElPaso, it’s a start!
We went to the airshow in Oshkosh – we sat at a table for lunch with a guy from Champaign. Sunday we went to church and met an ISU graduate who is coming here next weekend for a reunion. It is a small world.
Something astounded me as we pulled into the church parking lot. Young people were standing at both entrances with large pro-life posters and handing out literature. We of course thought they were with the church. They weren’t. They were with a group from ChurchRepent.com
The front of the literature says:
Don’t let the church sleep through another holocaust
The second page asks:
Are the churches guilty again?
I would post a copy of the inside but it contains graphic images of an aborted baby in Texas. It is obviously a close to full term baby, not a clump of cells. The brochure also maps how many churches are very close to the clinic that murdered that baby.
“Silence in the face of evil is itself evil, God will not hold us guiltless.” Dietrich Bonnhoeffer
If you call yourself a Christian please visit their site. My church body (LCMS.org) just passed a resolution in convention to reinforce our pro-life stance. Maybe that isn’t enough.
If your church doesn’t declare abortion murder, you are in the wrong church.
We are witnessing a holocaust way worse than the Nazi’s. These were young people standing up for biblical teachings, where are the rest of the Christians?
