Opportunities on the Horizon
December 16, 2011
This week, I had a chance to talk with Erik Whittington, the director of Rock for Life. RFL is a network of bands, musicians, artists and fans who are committed to promoting the sanctity of life. (We recorded a conversation for RFL’s National Pro-Life Youth Podcast, and I’ll be sure to post a link when it’s available.)
As you might expect, I’m a big believer in the power of music and other art to spread meaningful messages, and I’m really excited about some opportunities that are developing for me to work with Rock for Life and another group called Students for Life. There’s nothing official to announce yet, but stay tuned. (Here’s a hint: if you’ll be in Washington, D.C., during the March for Life weekend, be sure to register for the Students for Life conference. (http://www.sflalive.org/) You don’t have to be a student – the conference is for anyone high school age or older.)
I’m learning more and more every day about what it really means to answer God’s call to live all in for Him. When I was sitting on my bed at home writing “Silent Cry” after watching a presentation on abortion at school, I had no idea how God would use it. I hoped and prayed He would use it for His glory, but I’ve been blessed with how personal He’s made that call for me. At the time I hoped people would hear the song and be moved to unite in defense of the defenseless, but I had no idea God would use “Silent Cry” to open doors for me to be directly involved in this work.
It’s fun and challenging and a little bit intimidating, but God is so much bigger than any fear I may have. He doesn’t call us to live all in without making plans to work out our schedule, provide for our needs, and give us the strength to complete the work. I’m excited for what’s on the horizon, and blessed to have a great family, faithful friends and amazing fans supporting and encouraging me.
Stay tuned for a link to the Rock for Life podcast, and for more information on Students for Life as well. Hit me up on Facebook (www.facebook.com/RobertPierreMusic) or on Twitter (www.twitter.com/Robert_Pierre) and let me know if you’ll be in D.C. Jan. 22 and 23.)
