The Reason

From the Book of Luke:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. 

Can you imagine sending your child to this scary world?  Knowing your child would face hate, persecution, prejudice?  

But this happens every day, every minute.

In Dallas, at Parkland Hospital alone, more than 40 babies are born each day and each one of them will face evil and hate.  We all do.

If I were God (and as Lenny Bruce would say "it depends on the s-- you're smokin'), I don't know that I would have sent my son to die.  But parents have babies every day -- even knowing that this world will hurt and ultimately kill them -- because there is also so much joy in life.  

Yes, life is not perfect.  We don't always get our way.  People do hurt our feelings.  But, we can all do something every day to better this scary world.

Thank you for helping Community Partners of Dallas to help the abused and neglected children of Dallas County.  Each one of us is needed to keep babies safe.  Merry Christmas -- Paige
