By Faith McDonnell, Juicy Ecumenism
You may know that the title of this blog post is a quote from the film The Return of the King, the third film in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, based on J.R.R. Tolkein’s wonderful novels. It is also the title of a book by pastor and author Francis Frangipane. Frangipane’s complete title is This Day We Fight! Breaking the Bondage of a Passive Spirit (Chosen Books, 2005).
Now This Day We Fight! is also the title of IRD’s Religious Liberty Program’s new prayer initiative for 2015. Each new entry will appear on Juicy Ecumenism, and then be permanently stored on the IRD website, in a special category under the International Religious Freedom button.
We will focus on encouraging church members to intense, strategic prayer against the evil that threatens the global Church and that threatens all of civilization. To start our prayer effort, we have a special prayer against violence that was written by the late Reverend Cecil Kerr.
