Maggie Gobran, sometimes known as the “Mother Teresa of Egypt,” was invited to speak at the 2011 internationally televised Global Leadership Summit, sponsored by the Willow Creek Community Church, Chicago, IL., and I was able to sit in on the broadcast.
In concluding her remarks, Mama Gobran, as she is affectionally known, made this comment:
Silence your words so that you may listen to your thoughts; silence your thoughts so that you may listen to your heart; silence your heart so that you may listen to God.”
Gender, that basic fact of life that determines everything we are and everything we are going to be, is one issue the Creator has chosen for us. Determined for us prior to birth, we were given no choice in the matter. We are who we are by divine decree.
Not so, however, in America. So independent have we become from our Creator, so determined to ignore this most basic fact of nature, we not only give our children the right to choose but furthermore provide the means to change their gender and sexual orientation.
