Prayers in the State House

Washington State Capitol
Share it now!

By Robert Ray, President HNPS

After my invocation at the Oak Harbor City Council and a “suggestion” from friend and local radio celebrity, Sam Mulvey, I decided to look at the prayers in our own state legislature.

Not entirely to my surpise, I found lots and lots and lots of prayers.  At every opening they had an overtly christian prayer.  In fact it is called for in the daily order of business.

House Order of Business: Business shall
be disposed of in the following order:
1. Roll Call, Presentation of Colors,
Prayer, and Approval of the Journal of
the preceding day.

Going Bald for Cancer

Share it now!

Our president, Robert, is doing something pretty extreme, and we to asking you to join him in one of two ways:  You can do what he doing, or you can support him with a donation for childhood cancer research!

What is he doing?

He is going to have his head shaved at a St. Baldrick’s Foundation event.  Please come out and support on Mar 28, 2014 at University of Puget Sound 1500 N. Warner Tacoma, WA.

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long, healthy lives.

As a Shavee, he will  stand in solidarity with kids being treated for cancer. But the real point of all this is to raise money for research that will help save lives. He is  doing it for infants, children, teens, and young adults fighting cancer.

To see his donor names, fundraising progress, before and after photos, and – most importantly –the kids he is doing this for, please visit my page on the St. Baldrick’s website: http://www.stbaldricks.org/participants/mypage/687347/2014

The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research grants. This is a volunteer-driven charity, which keeps fundraising costs low and grants high. St. Baldrick’s gave over $24.5 million to childhood cancer research in 2013 – almost all raised by more than 58,000 “shavees” like me, from people like you!

You can give online, with a mobile device, or by phone (888-899-BALD). Credit cards are the most efficient way to give. Checks can be made payable to “St. Baldrick’s Foundation.” Every dollar counts in the fight to Conquer Childhood Cancers!

National Day of Reason

Share it now!

With the National day of Prayer coming up in a couple of months I felt it was time to get the ball rolling on the National Day of Reason Campaign.

I have sent a version of the letter below to Governor Jay Inslee requesting that his office proclaim May 1st as a Day of Reason in Washington state.  I will also be sending this letter out to several local officials and trying to get it in as letters to the editor in as many papers across the state as I can find.
