01 Sep Build One Another Up (1 Thes 5:11) by Dr. Rich Reich
“Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do.” ~ 1 Thes 5:11 (full readings)
Rich’s Reflections: One thing that I like about the LIFE Runners is that we are part of a team that supports one another through praying, fundraising, and running/walking. Being pro-life and defending the unborn can be exhausting and discouraging at times, but it is nice to know that we are not alone. We share in the beliefs in the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death. We have a large network of LIFE Runners to depend on from the local chapter level to the national and international level. It is great running alongside all of the blue jerseys during a marathon and seeing all of the LIFE Runner signs and people cheering along the roadside. In the first reading today, we are told that we are “children of the light and of the day;” therefore, we need to stay alert, because Jesus will be coming! He has destroyed the power of death, and therefore the power of abortion.
