Facebook, MeWe, and the Call to Evangelize

There is a recent exodus from Facebook, due to building indignation regarding a loss of trust. Many members have either closed their accounts or are at least considering doing so.

End Abortion Meme: It’s Simple, Yet Complicated

One of the tools I use in my pro-life advocacy is creating memes that initiate thought, tug on the heart-strings, or generally bring abortion into the light. As a rule, I go for a softer message – no bloody babies in trash bags or parts spelling out Planned Parenthood. The photos and messages are gleaned from where I am – my family,...
