He shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers. Malachi 4:6
Father's Day is a beautiful festival that acknowledges and appreciates the important role played by a father in raising the child and consequently building a stronger society. Though fathers have been revered at all times by civilizations across the globe ironically what was missing until the last century was the official recognition of the significance of fathers in one's life. Father's Day story is the tale of realization of the need for a Father's Day festival primarily by Ms Sonora Louise Smart Dodd of Washington. The story narrates Sonora's unflagging struggle to officially set a day to honor all fathers. Thanks to Sonora, today Fathers Day is celebrated in a large number of countries around the world.
The March will take place in Washington, D.C. on June 19th, beginning at 11:00 am. Please check out the 2014 March for Marriage website for more details. On the site, you'll find all the resources you need to get involved and participate in this year's March, including:
Memorial Day: The Price of Freedom May 2014 Courtesy of the Family Research Council
Freedom truly is a gift from God. Words engraved on Jefferson’s Memorial reflect that truth: “God who gave us life gave us liberty at the same time.” And freedom is foundational to who we are as a people. It is a part of the American DNA. But freedom is not free. Jesus Himself said:
“Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” (John 15:13)
Freedom requires sacrifice. And that is true for our nation. The cost of freedom is great. The fight for freedom is never over. We must fight to win it, and then we must fight to keep it.

Marriage Under Fire!
There is no question that Marriage is under attack today in the same way that Life itself was under fire in the years leading up to 1973 when the Supreme Court “legalized” abortion. That was 55 million abortions ago, 55 million unborn babies sacrificed on the altar of our self-absorbed obsessions and conveniences. It was and continues to be America’s Holocaust.
National Day of Prayer Leadership Breakfast May 1, 2014 7-9 AM hosted By Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries 2501 Mt. Gilead Blvd, Richmond, VA 23235
Prayer is a dependency on God. Prayer is a trust in His infinite character and attributes. Prayer is access into His life-changing grace. May the Christian community of RVA be built on these truths. May the grace of God bring Christ-centered change to individuals, to our Christian community, and to those who have never experienced the wonderful love of Jesus Christ in our region.
We want to invite you to a number of gatherings on the National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 1, 2014:

Last month I was much honored to speak for the third year in a row at the Iron Sharpens Iron National Men’s Equipping Conference in Richmond, VA. The event was sponsored by Noble Warriors, led by Mike Young. It was incredible to see approximately 1200 men gather to worship and hear the Word of God preached with authority. It was three years ago that Greene Hollowell convinced Mike to give me a chance. I want to thank Greene for believing in me and Mike for taking that chance.
I have not seen a stirring in men like this in many years. My prayer, like yours, is that the Holy Spirit will continue to increase His activity among Christian men throughout the United States. As you know, we are in desperate need of revival.

What would you do if you promised the "Keeper of the Abortion Industry Keys" you'd carry his message across America? What if his message could help restore unity and righteousness to a divided America?
Terry Beatley, a Virginia Christian Alliance board member, promised Dr. Bernard Nathanson, the co-founder of NARAL, to carry his personal story nationwide because his information sets the record straight about the most divisive issue in America. He was the doctor who campaigned for legalized abortion using very deceptive tactics to manipulate American opinion on the subject.

The message of Malachi was directed to a people plagued by corrupt priests and wickedness. The prophet confronted the people of Israel for their hypocrisy, infidelity, divorce, pride, greed and arrogance. The nation was so complacent in their sin that God's Word no longer had any impact on them.........is this where we are in Virginia today?

Racial Profiling...Hidden Agendas...and The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle For Life
The Preservation of Favored Races in the Struggle For Life is Charles Darwin's politically incorrect sub-title to his famous book, The Origin of Species By Means of Natural Selection. The politically incorrect sub-title has been erased from history, but a hundred years ago an elite group of "race purifiers" set into motion a methodical plan to do what Darwin's title suggested and it is "working" way beyond their greatest expectations.
