SacramentoPRAYS

Uniting people to pray in the Greater Sacramento Region.

“There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.” - Ephesians 4:4-6

Unity: Worth Fighting For

Why is it so hard for Christians to get along? Church splits and angry squabbles are commonplace throughout our history. As an antidote for these troubles we have carefully crafted statements like, “In the essentials unity, in everything else, charity,” or, “Major on the majors not the minors.” There are many things that we can easily agree on. There is one true and living God. Jesus died on the cross and rose on the third day. The Bible is God’s word. We are clear we are to pray, to fellowship and to obey Jesus teachings.


However, there are also some areas that are unclear and cause a great deal of division. Dutch pastors smoke. American pastors don’t. American pastors are obese while Dutch pastors are thin. Some say alcohol is evil. Others draw the line at drunkenness. Tattoos used to be avoided. Now worship leaders openly display them. Sometimes we let things go that should be confronted, other times we go at it over something that, later, seems so insignificant.


Unity is not easy, but it is good. God demands it. Who are we to dismiss His will? Difficult unity can only be hard won. Will you choose to fight for it? Start with a good look at some gospel essentials that can be a common ground and centered place from which to let the conversation begin and the fight for good unity grow strong.

Prayer is the foundation upon which we rely for everything. During our legislative office visits, we pray in front of each office, asking for God’s presence to lead the way, hoping for conversions of heart and mind, through conversations and compassion.

Californians for Life Advocacy Day, Thursday, January 22nd, 2015, will bring together citizens from all over the state, united together as a voice for life. California taxpayers want to help women and children, rather than pay to destroy baby boys and girls in the womb, hurting millions of women for a lifetime.

Registration begins at 9:30 at the Capitol in Room 447. The Legislative Training Workshop begins at 10:00 am, also in Room 447. We will be visiting Legislative offices throughout the day, finishing by 4:00 pm. Registration is $5 to off-set the cost of materials. Use the green “Order Now” button above to complete your on-line registration. For Catholics, there is a noon Mass at the nearby Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, recognizing the Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision. Everyone will be on their own schedule for lunch, as we continue our legislative office visits throughout the day, with 80 Assemblymembers and 40 state Senators to visit by 4:00 pm!

Find your Assemblymember and state Senator by using your zipcode.
