OPEN INVITATION TO MARCH 19 PASTORS SUMMIT
An open invitation to the pastors and key Church leaders in the Shenandoah Valley area and surrounding counties was released recently and reads:
In keeping with the vision and goals of the Family Research Council’s ministry to pastors, “Watchmen on the Wall,” the Virginia Watchmen Council, in partnership with Americans for Prosperity and the Black Robe Regiment of Virginia, invites you to participate in a Pastors Summit on March 19, 2019 at Restoration Christian Fellowship in Strasburg, Virginia. This important and historic event will begin promptly at 10:00 AM and end at 2:00 PM.
America is at a crossroads, a pivotal time that could signal the beginning of the end, or depending on how the Church responds, the end of the beginning. The increasing number and gravity of threats to Christianity in recent years, suggest that religious freedom in America is on “life support,” and can no longer be taken for granted. Because you value “the Great Commission” and cherish the Bill of Rights, it is imperative that you be at this meeting. For these and other reasons, we urge you make room on your schedule to join us on March 19, so you can add your wisdom and insight to the strategy we are pursuing to restore righteous and just government, both now and in the future.
This invitation is for pastors and their key leaders, regardless of church size, who value the Sanctity of Life, traditional marriage and family, and desire to impact their communities with the Gospel.
Now is the time that pastors and their churches must take action to turn this nation back to God. At the Summit you will be provided with practical tools to help you and your congregation get started.
Please join other pastors for this highly-informative briefing, luncheon and round-table discussion, on March 19 at Restoration Fellowship church (just off I-81 in Strasburg), located at 2128 John Marshall Hwy, Strasburg, VA 22657 (driving directions) from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM to hear about practical steps you and your church can take to restore righteousness in government, both in Virginia and our Nation’s Government.
Attendance is free and a complimentary lunch will be provided.”
Please secure your seat at this crucial and historical event by contacting Dale Carpenter at (540) 622-2796 or email@example.com.
SCA hopes to see you there, and joining the growing group already committed to attending.
JOSEPH WARREN AWARD PRESENTATION
Warren County is named after General Joseph Warren, one of the lesser known but greatest founding fathers of this country and who was among the first to be killed at Bunker Hill (Breed’s Hill). He was one of the two patriots that sent Paul Revere on his midnight ride to notify the colonists that the “British are coming”.
Larry Johnson (a founding member of our Shenandoah Christian Alliance and past President of the local SAR /Sons of the American Revolution) organized an effort to recognize Joseph Warren in our schools, government building and town library by designing and placing plaques that reminds on lookers of part of our Warren County heritage (14 large plaques in total) and a significant part of this country’s founding struggles.
Note: It is part of the Shenandoah Christian Alliance’s mission to help inform our community of the individuals and actions that help found this nation on Biblical principles. The opportunity to engage our school children and fellow citizens with a reminder of the contributions of patriots like Dr. General Joseph Warren are part of that mission.
This video is a ceremony that we attended as the Sons of the American Revolution presented the county administrators with a check for $4,400.00 to create and install the plaques.
Future presentation ceremonies will be conducted at each site when the plaques are installed.
NEW YORK LEGISLATES INFANTICIDE
Democrats No Longer Hide Their Contempt for Human Life
Never has there been a more appropriate time for our churches to be addressing this inhumane butchering of our most defenseless population for the sake of:
- those yet to be butchered
- and for the millions of men and women dealing with the guilt of abortions in days past.
Just a few weeks after tens of thousands of Pro Life marchers in Washington made their annual appeal to revoke the killing license of “Roe vs Wade,” New York governor (Andrew Cuomo) and other state and party leaders are still celebrating the legislation that formally approves the slaughter of babies up to the very moment before they are born. See: (New York Governor Cuomo Wants To Ban The Death Penalty…Except For Unborn Children. Go Ahead And Kill Those).
Back here in Virginia, our Governor is trying to dodge the flak from his talk about allowing post-birth infanticide and is being joined by other legislators that have been exposed for their deadly pro-abortion (death) stances i.e. Kathy Tran and “back pedaling” (“I didn’t read the bill I was Co-sponsoring”) Delegate Dawn Adams (Democrat co-sponsor of the “right to kill” legislation that was narrowly defeated by a narrow majority Republican assembly).
As we’ve been saying for so long, our legislators are dealing with a question that would not exist if we, as people of faith (Protestants, Catholics, Jews etc.) had already answered the question and taught our children the truth about the sanctity of life and the beginning of life at the moment of conception.
Imagine what an impact we could have if every church leader (pastors and laymen) said enough is enough (over 60 million babies murdered since Roe vs Wade) and took a visible and vocal stand against abortion… and did not back down from a concept that murder is OK as long as the victim is still in the womb!
Our SCA weekly Wednesday meetings are open by invitation (in order to get a head count for the meal) to pastors and laymen concerned with the state of our current culture and determined to help bring this community and this nation back to the fundamental Judeo/Christian values that guided our founders. Please feel free to join us. For information, contact Dale Carpenter:

GOV. RALPH NORTHAM FACING BACKLASH
Main Stream Media Soft Peddles Hard Truth
According to CNN, “Virginia Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam is facing backlash after he voiced his support for a state measure that would significantly loosen restrictions on late-term abortions.”
“[Third trimester abortions are] done in cases where there may be severe deformities. There may be a fetus that’s nonviable. So in this particular example, if a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen,” Northam, a pediatric neurosurgeon, told Washington radio station WTOP. “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired. And then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”
The bill — which among other things would end a state rule that requires at least three physicians confirm “that a third trimester abortion is necessary to prevent the woman’s death or impairment of her mental or physical health” and ends “the need to find that any such impairment to the woman’s health would be substantial and irremediable” — is currently tabled in Virginia’s legislature.”
Now, thanks to CNN and the other media outlets, Northam’s only hope of political survival is for the coincidental appearance of a strange photograph of him mocking the African-American community wearing black-face makeup during his student years. Evidently the Democratic party and the media (same thing really) are hoping this “horrible incident” will distract the vast majority of Americans from the real horror: This former pediatrician telling us that attending physicians should make the new-born comfortable before taking her life – for the benefit of the mother. Such remarks were simply unthinkable merely a generation ago. Only now do we debate something this, instead of being simply outraged. Northam should be charged and subsequently tried for inciting infanticide, or at least be shamed into resigning on the spot – and then arrested.

“These are the times that try men’s souls.” And, “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” *
Thomas Paine couldn’t know the half of it these days. There have been few times in my life I have ever seen such polarity and bitter acrimony within America like I’ve seen and heard in the last two weeks. The jaw-dropping, vitriolic, hysterical screeds from the procelytes of the far-left are amazing, and frankly very ominous. And that’s just on my Facebook. The headlines and bleats from the 24-hour news channels are getting outright insane. If I were just a casual observer, I would think that America is losing its mind. (Read more here)

In a video originally posted September 26th 2015 on YouTube, Jonathon Cahn, President of Hope of the World Ministries and author of Harbinger, was recorded preaching this message before the Family Research Council at their Values Voter Summit in 2015. What makes it interesting are the illustrations and prophetic teaching that carry even more weight today than they did just one year earlier. It’s probably no accident it was recently republished following the election. (Read more here)
