This past Sunday, I finished writing a screenplay set in 1938, Nazi controlled Germany, just one year before the onset of WWII. I had several deadlines that I had set up to keep me on track, but had also been praying about the perfect timing of it as well. That night, before we went to bed, we had a perfect view of the blood moon. It wasn't till early, the next morning, that I realized I had finished the screenplay on eve of a blood moon. In fact, we viewed it turning red before midnight. The significance of that played out later for me this week.
An important note, Sunday's blood moon happened to be on Tu BiShvat, The New Year of the Trees. It was the last of three blood moons in a row on Tu BiShvat: in 2017, 2018 and 2019. This year, it will be followed by five meteor showers, four falling on Jewish holy days. More interesting info on this can be found in the book, The Sign of the Son, by Mike Spidle.
This little girl, walking for life in pink sneakers while holding her father's protective hand, touches my heart. - Georgia Right to Life March - Tuesday, January 22, 2019.
The screenplay is about a young woman in the South traveling to Nuremberg to see family on her mother's side and touches on the parallels she sees between racism in America and Nazi controlled Germany. She notices how propaganda, peer pressure and steady methodical political progression sway the average German citizen to look the other way and to justify the mistreatment and genocide the Jewish people. Many Germans were not on board with the Nazi agenda, but over time, many became worn down by the persistence and continual threats of an evil regime. I can't help but see the parallels in how our society today is looking the other way and making justifications for killing the most innocent among us. Have we learned nothing from the Civil Rights Movement and the Holocaust?
Activist, Catherine Davis, founder and president of The Restoration Project, spoke right before the march, about how the black community has been targeted by Planned Parenthood, and she seeks to see them held accountable for the genocide of her people . . . our brothers and sisters. According to it's definition by Merriam-Webster, genocide is the deliberate and systematic destruction of a racial, political or cultural group. Davis often partners with the National Black Prolife Coalition, the Network of Politically Active Christians, and the Frederick Douglas Foundation in an ongoing effort to educate Americans about the issues that are impacting the Black community. In my eyes, she ranks right up there with Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in her outspokenness on injustice and encouraging Christians to act. Her goal is for the removal of the Office of Population Affairs and Planned Parenthood. Click here to see her speak at The Lincoln Memorial with friend, Dr. Alveda King.
Here are two important links, Catherine Davis provides, in which you can easily take action.

After New York's Governor Cuomo passed The Reproductive Health Act that same day, my heart grieved along with many others. The name of the act sounds innocent enough, but what was passed truly leaves many shaking their heads. If you think you are pro-choice and made it this far, I thank you for your willingness to read this post. I have found that most people who are in favor of abortion, have not seen videos or illustrations of what actually happens. This video will explain the different procedures used and risks to the mother.
After the silent march, my friend asked me what I thought the blood moon represents and I responded with, "I'm not exactly sure. Blood moons happen, but when they happen on Jewish holy days or other festivals, I believe God is sending a message and we need to pay attention." Right before posting this, the Lord brought this verse in Deuteronomy to mind. The God of Israel says this, "This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live." Deuteronomy 30:19 NIV (New International Version)
If you've had one or multiple abortions, please know you are loved. Need encouragement, listen to Jean's story here.
To all my Christian friends, please don't look the other way.
Let all that you do be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14 (ESV)
