August 2015 Invitation – What Does It Mean To Be Pro-Life?

13 Aug

Dialogue on What it Means to be Pro-Life

You may have seen the following quote by, Sister Joan Chittister, O.S.B. :

“I do not believe that just because you’re opposed to abortion, that that makes you pro-life. In fact, I think in many cases, your morality is deeply lacking if all you want is a child born but not a child fed, not a child educated, not a child housed. And why would I think that you don’t? Because you don’t want any tax money to go there. That’s not pro-life. That’s pro-birth. We need a much broader conversation on what the morality of pro-life is.”

This month we’d like to have a broad conversation about what the morality is of pro-life. What does it mean to you if you use that moniker to self-describe?  What do you think it should mean?  Where would it take your walk of faith if you invested yourself in being pro-life?  Those are just some questions to get you started as you think about the idea of being pro-life beyond the question of abortion.

Please share your link in the comments section of this post by Tuesday, August 25 at midnight. We will publish a link list on Wednesday, August 26 that you will need to copy and paste to the end of your post.

We ask two things of all participants who wish to be included in the link list:

(1) Begin your post with a short intro stating that you are participating in the synchroblog and link to this post. Examples: “This post is part of the August 2015 synchroblog on “What It Means To Be Pro-Life”. Or “This post is part of the August 2015 synchroblog that invited bloggers to write about “What It Means To Be Pro-Life”.

(2) Add the link list to the bottom of your post with a note encouraging readers to check out the other synchroblog contributions. We do all of the heavy lifting by putting the list together with all of the links included. Once we post the link list all you have to do is copy and paste. The list at the end of each post makes it easy for readers to move from one post to the other and increases exposure and readership for all of our participants.

Thanks for participating! We look forward to reading your fabulous posts!

August 2014 Synchroblog – “CONNECTION”

6 Aug

Connection. Collage

The theme for our August synchroblog is another one word prompt and that word is:

“Connection”

Write about whatever comes to mind when you ponder “connection”.

Write something informative, tell a story, share a poem or piece of art, reveal a desire or dream, ask a question, review a book …  the theme is wide open.

Please comment below with your name and blog post link before the end of the day on Tuesday, August 19 and I will post the link list on Wednesday, August 20.

Thanks to Elaine Hansen for suggesting this theme! If you have a suggestion be sure and take our “Ideas Survey” (the link is on the bottom right of the main page of our site)
