In anticipation of the 36th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, pink and blue flags have been placed on lawns and in church yards all over rural northeast Missouri.

Grant ,O God, that your holy and life-giving spirit may so move every human heart (and especially the hearts of the people of this land), that barriers which divide us may crumble, suspicions disappear, and hatreds cease; that our divisions being healed, we may live in justice and peace; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen (The Book of Common Prayer)
