JUSTICE FOR ALL Impacts Virginia
***A NEW JUSTICE FOR ALL EVENT WILL BE HELD IN SAVANNAH, GA ON FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 20th AT 6:30PM, SPONSORED BY THE LIVING VINE CHRISTIAN MATERNITY HOME AND CALVARY BAPTIST TEMPLE. THIS POWERFUL FREE EVENT WILL FEATURE COMMUNITY LEADERS FROM SAVANNAH AND CIVIL RIGHTS CHAMPION DR. ALVEDA KING AND RADIANCE FOUNDATION CO-FOUNDER, RYAN BOMBERGER.***
The night before the election, issues that transcend one single election (or politics in general) were discussed in a powerful forum called Justice For All. Sponsored by The Radiance Foundation and New Life Providence Church, the event featured Dr. Alveda King (niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., founder of King for America), Terry Meeuwsen (700 Club, OrphansPromise.org), Dr. Carlton McLeod (Calvary Revival Church Chesapeake and D6Reformation.org), Emily Ruppert (Director of HR Bethany, www.Bethany.org/vabeach), Toby DeBause (President of Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater), and The Radiance Foundation co-founders Bethany and Ryan Bomberger. Board members Tina Davis and Dana Williams contributed, too, to the event from the stage helping to introduce the work of The Radiance Foundation and moderating the illuminating Question & Answer portion of the evening.
Dr. King charmed the audience with recollections of her amazing experiences in the King family. Always affable, King inspired young and old and clearly laid out that today’s most pressing civil right is the Right to Life. She talked about the crucial role of fathers reflecting on her own, A.D. King, Martin Luther King Jr and her grandfather, “Daddy King”. Addressing the devastation of abortion, she explained how she was post-abortive and how abortion hurts women.
Each panelist provided powerful words about domestic and international adoption, family preservation and discipleship, pregnancy care resources, poverty, and how Planned Parenthood is NOT the savior of any community.
A mixture of moving personal testimonies and potent multi-media elements, JUSTICE FOR ALL was the first event of its kind at New Life Providence Church, and we are so grateful for all of the incredible support from Senior Pastor Dan Backens, Pastor Joel Solomon and Pastor Tina Davis.
Hundreds attended the event, and the feedback has been absolutely tremendous. Here are some remarks that moved us:
“Honored to have met and heard Dr. Alveda King, Martin Luther King’s niece last night at “Justice for All”. Inspiring and powerful woman…a fellow abolitionist, Christ-a-crat. Hearing her last night was inspiring and confirmed even more to vote radically-Christ-a-cratically. 🙂
A Christ-a-crat defined: One who supports platforms that uphold biblical principals. 🙂 I’m Janet White and I approve this message.” –Janet White
“You have a new nickname…Ryan “Shut Down Corner” Bomberger!” –-Bishop Carlton McLeod
“Amazing night listening to history to forge the way for brighter futures for countless babies and children. May their unspoken words count for J U S T I C E for all!!!” –Marcia Kinslow
“Last night transformed my way of thinking and it confirmed what God has been speaking to me for some time now. Was honored just to hear the heart of the Father and to get a clearer picture of what I am to do… Enjoyed meeting her and hearing her story.” –Jodi Slaughter
“I can not stop thinking about everything that was presented last night! Thank you for sharing your passion.”–Pam Werner
“That was a great presentation at NewLife Providence.” –Charles Heiden
“Great job last night!! I was so blessed to be there at NLP. I did enjoy hearing Dr King but more so I enjoyed hearing what you guys are all about and how blessed I am to have you guys apart of our church!! In my heart and was saying yes and Amen! Great job!” –Ginger Strouss
“Thank you for putting it on! Amazing!!!” –Courtney Harding
“THANK YOU so much as well as all of those who spoke for this absolutely wonderful testimony. I was there and so pumped afterwards I could hardly go to sleep! Thank you for the inspiration, the reverence for God’s plan and for giving expression to his perfect love for “the least of these”. Such an honor to hear. Dr. King et. al. We were all very blessed indeed.” –Marsha Brown
The Radiance Foundation is thankful for all of those who volunteered, who served as panelists, who blessed us with song (thanks Tim Leffel and Joy “Haddie Nuff” Hargett), and who participated in such a crucial conversation.
