The National Organization for Marriage’s Summer of Marriage Tour 2010 will be rolling into Augusta Wednesday morning with the rally in Capitol Park across from the State House starting at noon.
Speaking at the rally will be Dr. Jennifer Roback Morse, Ruth Institute; Rev. Bob Emrich, Director of the Maine Jeremiah Project; and Charla Bansley, State Director of Concerned Women for America.
Dr. Morse is a noted speaker and economist, formerly affiliated with Yale University and the University of Chicago, now committed to promoting an intellectual and social climate favorable to marriage, reaching out to young adults with a positive, upbeat message of lifelong married love.
Rev. Emrich is a long-time veteran of the marriage battles in Maine, helping to direct the Question One campaign last fall. As Director of the Maine Jeremiah Project, he is building a grassroots coalition of social conservatives, organizations and churches, educating and equipping Christians to engage in the culture.
Charla Bansley has fought along side you in protecting marriage. She will encourage those attending with the fact that God has called each of us to the battle. “I would dare not try to explain why God sees fit to put the church in the middle of this battle over and over, but I believe it is for an even higher purpose than protecting the family-it is contending for the very souls of men.” Concerned Women for America of Maine has over 2,800 members.
Most importantly, the rally provides YOU with the opportunity to come out and connect with other marriage supporters in Maine. Perhaps you will meet up with volunteers you met during last fall’s campaign. No doubt you’ll make some new friends as well!
If at all possible, I hope you’ll take a long lunch hour next Wednesday and join us in Capitol Park as we stand for marriage, kicking off NOM’s Marriage Tour 2010!
See you there!
