Theme & Objectives - "In His Image"
The 2011 Affirming The Culture of Life Conference objective is to raise awareness among Catholics and non-Catholics about right to life issues. Through Scripture and Church Teaching, in conjuction with our esteemed speakers, it is our goal
to draw Montanans together so that our Montana way of life may one day include respect for all human life, from the moment of conception to natural death.
Genesis 1:26-31 (NAB)
Then God said: "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. Let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and the cattle, and over all the wild animals and all the creatures that crawl on the ground."
God created man in his image; in the divine image he created him; male and female he created them.
God blessed them, saying: "Be fertile and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and all the living things that move on the earth."
God also said: "See, I give you every seed-bearing plant all over the earth and every tree that has seed-bearing fruit on it to be your food;
and to all the animals of the land, all the birds of the air, and all the living creatures that crawl on the ground, I give all the green plants for food." And so it happened.
God looked at everything he had made, and he found it very good. Evening came, and morning followed--the sixth day.
