20 Mar 2012 Prayer Request: God & Government 2012

Early next week, 50 men and women representing 16 ARPA chapters and ARPA Canada are converging in Ottawa to bring a Christian perspective directly to our nation's leaders. These ARPA reps have booked dozens of meetings with Members of Parliament and Senators on Tuesday. In teams of two or three, we are meeting with these leaders to discuss Woodworth's motion about the definition of a human being, aboriginal affairs, prostitution laws, and a wide range of other issues that are close to our hears and relevant to the leaders we are meeting with. On Tuesday evening we are hosting an event, also just for MPs and Senators, on the topic of multiculturalism. Dr. Cornelis Van Dam, who recently published a fantastic book about current political issues from a biblical perspective, will be doing the talk and taking the questions. We are giving a transcript of his talk (both English and French) to every MP and Senator in Canada.
