09 May 2014 God & Government 2014: Huge Success

ARPA's Infiltrate Parliament – Promoting Life, Faith, and Justice(More pictures to come) Parliament Hill was abuzz with close to 70 representatives of ARPA chapters from across the nation who gathered last week and sat down with approximately 50 Members of Parliament and Senators to discuss issues close to our hearts. This was part of three days of other activities that included an evening reception for MPs by Dr. John Smith (pictured on right), strategy and training sessions for the ARPA chapters, a speech to the ARPA groups from cabinet minister Jason Kenney, as well as the March for Life and Reformed Prayer Service. Day 1: Parliament HillIn the weeks and months prior, the ARPA chapters booked meetings with government officials who are from their area or who are responsible for an issue that they wanted to address. We were able to meet with Conservative, Liberal, NDP, and Green MPs from a wide variety of worldviews and talk in depth about prostitution, palliative care, abortion, and a sports betting bill that was pushed through the House of Commons largely unnoticed and is in the Senate right now. We were able to pray with many of the MPs and express our appreciation for their service, while also sharing our concerns about the direction our country is taking on some of these matters.

As always, the MPs were encouraged to see ordinary Canadians make the effort to put their work and tasks aside to come to Ottawa and meet with them.
