Signs of Life in Downtown Sidney
Shelby County pro-lifers joined more than a hundred thousand fellow citizens across the country on Sunday, October 1, forming a “Life Chain” in defense of preborn children and all vulnerable human persons.
About 50-60 attendees gathered at 2:30 at the courthouse and began with prayer led by Pastor David Weyrauch of Redeemer Lutheran Church in Sidney. Stephanie Esser, a senior at Anna High School presented her outstanding speech on euthanasia, which merited a 2nd place finish in this year’s RTL Oratory Contest. Then participants spread around the court square with pro-life signs and prayed and witnessed to passersby until the event closed at 3:30.
Thank you to all who attended and assisted in any way with our 2017 Life Chain.
A big thank you to the many volunteers who staffed the RTL booth during the Shelby County Fair.
Special thanks to Karen Berning for creating the display and and organizing the volunteers.
