The Georgia Right to Life dinner, “Southern Evening of Prayer, “was held at Aquinas High School, on August 19, 2017.  The first speaker, Gary Garner, author of “Swept up in the Spirit,” said that he was grabbed by the hand of God, and called to stand for the least of our brothers, the unborn.  Gary spoke about the deception women believe about abortion. He gave us a bird’s eye view of what often goes on behind the closed doors of abortion clinics.  A mother may leave her murdered baby behind, but the memory remains.

James Henry Shank was born on April 24, 1830 in Rectortown, Fauquier County, Virginia, the son of John Henry Shank and Mary (“Polly”) Mann. His family was of German extraction on both sides. Both families were Quaker in religion and therefore anti-slavery, although his parents had obtained a household slave, Nathaniel.

Americus--Ten years ago, Dick and Peggy Minor, now parents of three, realized that the secret to having a perfect family is to remember that families are completed not by man on his time or terms but rather with the help of the Holy Spirit.


After trying to conceive for eight years, Peggy miscarried twin boys approximately three months before her due date. When told that another pregnancy was out of the question, the Minors were understandably upset.


“It was heart-wrenching,” Peggy Minor said.

“Ree-Ruh-Lee!” came shouting across the kitchen table toward the living room.


“What now?” I asked over the morning news show.


“Ree Ree Lee (AnnaMarie) just spilled all of her yogurt on the floor,” said Eli two seats over, whose voice sounded more like a disappointed mom with both hands on her hips than a toddler in a booster seat.

Last December Pope Francis officially recognized the martyrdom of Father Stanley Rother, a priest of the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City who was killed in Guatemala by factions of that country’s military, making him the first recognized martyr born in the United States.  This recognition of martyrdom has cleared the way for his beatification which will take place on September 23 in Oklahoma City.
