Why do so many people participate in the Vision Walk? People from all church denominations and backgrounds come together in an amazing display of ecumenical solidarity and passion seldom witnessed today. And all for one reason–to erase the need for abortion.
What does the Vision Walk actually accomplish? The Walk certainly raises critical funds for the mission but it does so much more than that. The Walk raises awareness in our community about the vital life affirming work of CompassCare. It is a tool for pledge-raising walkers to give other people the opportunity to participate financially in what God is doing insulating women from the exploitative practices of abortionists as well as to save the lives of pre-born children through the information and services women deserve in order to make a truly informed decision. Only when a woman feels free to choose to have her baby is her choice truly free, free from coercion. So ultimately what the Vision Walk does is give followers of Jesus another opportunity to reconcile the world to God. “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation . . .” 2 Corinthians 5:18.
Join the team at 9:00 A.M. this Saturday, May 19th at MCC’s Brighton Campus. Bring your family to CompassCare’s annual Vision Walk and Family Festival. Already almost $45,000 has been raised with over 200 pledge raising walkers. That’s 15% ahead of where we were last year this time. And those numbers will skyrocket as it always does on Saturday toward the goal of $333,000! I’ll meet you there. If you would like to sponsor a walker or become a pledge-raising walker click here.
