§ What is Pro-Life Unity?

To achieve Pro-Life Unity we will establish standards that we all agree upon, and efforts that we all regularly participate in. By working together we can challenge the culture of death and the apathy which is pervasive in our society.

Mark 6:30, 31   Thought/Prayer:  Tell-and-Tell.  Topics:  2 at end.

Mark 6:30, 31   “And the apostles coming together unto Jesus, related to him all things that they had done and taught.  And he said to them: Come apart into a desert place, and rest a little. For there were many coming and going: and they had not so much as time to eat.”  Douay-Rheims 1899 American Edition (DRA)  http://www.bible.com (Read this scripture and more at http://prayerpivot.com)

Isn’t this really neat?  It’s show-and-tell time for Jesus and his disciples – well, maybe tell-and-tell; or perhaps some artifacts of remembrance were included, as the disciples shared from their lives and hearts about their activities.  Perhaps what makes this scene a bit extra heartwarming is the fact that Jesus did not call his disciples together:  they “gathered themselves unto” him.  We can perhaps envision a kindergartener running into the kitchen to mother, or into the study to father, to say everything they have to say about their day.  It’s so exciting to share one’s activities with an audience so ready to listen.  And Jesus always listened to whoever was with him. 

It was probably so extra fun to share with Jesus.  He would have a look of rapt attention, focused on each speaker in turn.  Perhaps there is some jockeying for who gets to go next.  Maybe all the disciples are speaking at once!

But however the scene presents itself, it’s clear that his best friends wanted to share with their Master, and it’s clear that he wanted to listen. 

The stream of talk probably included much mention of miracles, opportunities to share, and exhilaration over God’s goodness and grace.  Just try to think how much fun it would be to tell Jesus all about it!  He would be so gracious and interested, and well into rejoicing over great achievements.  He would even be interested in the smallest shard of detail concerning conversations gone right, and difficulties overcome by the Spirit as sharing unfolded.

Do you suppose there were even a few “Praise the Lord”s?  (Even though the Lord of praise was sitting right there?)  Maybe so.

God gives us relationships in which we are in sync with others so much that the sharing reaches great heights.  We see it in friendships among Christians; this description of how it was with Jesus is beautiful to us who understand this type of sharing – the disciples weren’t just telling what happened, we can be sure – they are sharing outcomes of their day’s events.  That is the beautiful part; we know the outcomes were blessed.

Lord, help us to treasure especially the times we share with our fellow Christian brothers and sisters.  Help us to inspire us to share all of Your victories, through our activities.  Please, Lord, let our faces shine with the love of the fellowship, and let us shine our love of our Christian brothers and sisters onto those struggling with LIFE issues so that they will want to share their lives with us also.

Topics:  Pray for fellowship with our Christian brothers and sisters to be rich – and may we always see it as blessing us in order to bless others, especially those with LIFE issues.
