Last year I got shingles out of the stress of trying to organize the calendar for the Delaware 40 Days for Life effort. This year I am a worker bee, not an organizer. This is the second year for 40 Days for Life, an ecumenical effort of prayer, fasting, and community outreach to bring an end to the scourge of abortion in the US.
Jesus spent 40 days wrestling with the devil in the desert. Moses spent 40 years wrangling the people of God through the desert. Let's spend 40 days in prayer and sacrifice, wrestling and wrangling in the desert of fear and hopelessness that chooses death by abortion over life with hope.
