Looking at a cell phone to make use of the time while rocking my son to sleep in the dark? Pray for him instead.

Here’s the scene at UCLA’s Bruin Walk on JFA’s second day of outreach in early June.  JFA staff and volunteers set up five tables inviting people to dialogue with us (one of them is down the walk to the left of the frame).  As you can see, one-to-one conversations were happening at every table.  JFA was invited […]

Sometimes I find myself so stuck to email — sending people links, suggesting discussions, engaging in dialogue in a sort of virtual world — that I stop and wonder, “What in the world am I doing?”  And I’m not even meaning to.  I find it sad.  There is something about the eyes-glued-to-a-screen-while-typing environment that is very […]

When I reviewed the photos from JFA’s recent outreach event at the University of Kansas, I was especially encouraged and struck by the photo above.  My brief May newsletter decodes the photo, discusses why it’s special, and explains JFA’s passion for…More Conversations.

Most of us have fears about discussing abortion.  Corrie was no different.  She recently attended a mission trip that JFA led for Christian Heritage Academy‘s Salt and Light program.  Here’s what she said about the outreach to the University of Oklahoma: I was terrified to talk to anyone, and made a goal to talk to just […]

The JFA Team just returned from two days of outreach to the University of Kansas, along with seminar events at Benedictine College and a community seminar in Lawrence, Kansas.  The events are illustrated in the gallery below, which you can access by clicking the picture or link.  In the picture below, JFA training specialist Jeremy Gorr […]

My March letter tells the true story of a pro-life woman, a pro-choice woman, a bitter argument, and … Common Ground Man. Here’s a short excerpt: This dear pro-life woman had crystal clarity about the unborn and abortion, so I surely did not want to discourage her.  I wanted her to feel affirmed, but I also […]

JFA trainers led three Abortion: From Debate to Dialogue seminars (Seat Work) in Georgia in early March.  A total of 46 attended.  The team led 5 days of outreach to Kennesaw State University and the University of Georgia in Athens.  Seven attended outreach for the first time, and volunteers from previous events also joined the team to […]

On the March for Life JFA training specialists Catherine Wurts and Rebecca Haschke participated in the March for Life JFA-style: they turned it into an opportunity to teach pro-life advocates to dialogue!  See “JFA Equips 263 at the March for Life” for more, including what happened to one student when she returned home. On the […]

In my February letter, I challenged myself, our staff, and our supporters to set aside time to pray each day for JFA.  You can take the challenge, too!  The letter includes seven specific prayer requests for JFA, including one of JFA’s 2015 goals that I feel is well beyond our abilities.  Projects like these help […]
