City leaders are turning to the local church for help after learning that 90 girls from one high school are now pregnant or will have had a baby during this academic year. Together they have launched the "No, Baby" campaign.
But first, a reminder and an explanation.
THE REMINDER: We are sending a booklet containing the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States to everyone who donates to Faith and Freedom during the month of March. This is an expression of thanks and a part of our ongoing educational mission.
Your financial support allows us to continue to advance Judeo-Christian values in the culture and to inform, inspire and involve people in important social issues.
AN EXPLANATION: We have recently been receiving a number of blog comments in languages other than English--primarily several Middle East languages, but several others as well. While our focus is on Washington State and the United States, we have been aware for some time that people in other countries are reading our blogs. Recent reports from our web servers are showing that people in 34 different countries are reading what we publish.
We do not have the ability to translated languages, nor the resources to hire people to do so. Thank you, to all who read our blogs, however your comments must be in English to be considered for posting. And remember--- No links are allowed. Thanks.
Memphis is well-known for its blues, barbecue, and Beale Street. But the latest buzz in the city is about babies having babies.
Bluff City made national headlines in January with reports of 90 girls at Frayser High School being pregnant or having a baby this academic year.
School leaders and politicians challenged the published pregnancy figures, but none denied the city has a problem.
It's a crisis that has Memphis leaders turning to the church for answers.
"City leaders turning to the Church for answers" is a great concept. Our country was built on that premise.
A massive media campaign has been launched that encourages girls to say "No" to sex before marriage.
Beyond the media blitz, community leaders and politicians, and church leaders are working together.
Youth Vision, a Christian outreach ministry has released a new song titled "No, Baby" and the community center is now helping produce a music video for the song.
I have linked the story which also contains a link to the song.
Local churches and the community leaders working together as opposed to the "community" leaders running away from the church wearing their "SEPARATION" t-shirts.
Be Vigilant. Be Discerning. Be Hopeful. Be Prayerful. Be Active. Be Available.
