KEY WORDS: March For Life, Kirk Cameron, Athletes in Action
“Key words” play such a huge part in our lives. We as consumers in the market (“brick and mortar” and online) are struck as if with infectious darts in the chest causing us to buy or not buy. Usually on impulse.
Words and phrases such as “Discounted,” “Warehouse Sale,” “Buy One Get One Free” (BOGO) and so on are intentionally placed in front of our faces in order for us to react in the “seller’s” favor.
However, perhaps nowhere are key words more important for a seller or influencer than on the internet. Since the advent of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) things have never been the same. Businesses can live or die based on how well they are using key words on the web to rise to the top of search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo Search.
So, in “honor” of this relatively new phenomena (20-plus years), Media on Mission is introducing a new feature called KEY WORDS which will highlight recent top stories that are not only of interest topically, but for the words being key.
Below are headlines and leads to three key stories for today. Can you find the key words? Enjoy!
Kirk Cameron says abortion is a ‘personal issue’ for him and his family at March for Life
BY MICHAEL GRYBOSKI
THE CHRISTIAN POST
Pro-life Christian actor Kirk Cameron said that it was “thrilling” to speak at the March for Life this year, and he hopes the annual march that takes place around the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision would continue even if the contentious Supreme Court ruling is overturned.
Tens of thousands of pro-life activists and politicians gathered at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. on Friday for the annual March for Life.
The “Growing Pains” star gave remarks on the main stage to those gathered not long before they marched from the National Mall to the U.S. Supreme Court building.
In an interview with The Christian Post on Friday after the march, Cameron said he was excited to be there, saying he believed the attendees had “cold hands, but very warm hearts.”

‘Equality Begins in the Womb’: Tens of Thousands of Pro-Lifers Defend the Unborn in Washington
BY BILLY HALLOWELL
Tens of thousands of pro-life citizens took to the streets in Washington, D.C., on Friday to affirm a powerful message about the importance of protecting the unborn: “equality begins in the womb.”
That proclamation — the official theme of the 2022 March For Life — is one that has been echoed for decades by activists and advocates seeking to reframe the abortion debate in America.
The annual march is a peaceful demonstration aimed at visually showing that the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court case legalizing abortion across the U.S. did anything but solve or dismiss the moral quagmires surrounding abortion.
The first March For Life unfolded in 1974 in the wake of the Roe decision, but the annual event has only grown and intensified over the years.

Super Bowl LVI: Sports Ministry Helps NFL Players Share Faith in Jesus
BY ALEX MURASHKO
THINK ETERNITY/MEDIA ON MISSION
Sometimes, the broadcast cameras at a National Football League game catch the action on the 50-yard-line after the game, sometimes they don’t. But every year, for the past 30 years, a group of players from opposing teams kneel and pray together in the middle of the field.
Two faithful NFL team chaplains, supported by the sports ministry, Athletes in Action, teamed up to help inspire the first NFL post-game prayer huddle at the 50 yard line, AIA’s Chief Marketing Officer Darrin Gray shared during an interview with Think Eternity recently.
“Praise the Lord that this prayerful tradition lives on in NFL stadiums,” Darrin Gray stated in a LinkedIn post that includes the only photo known of the first prayer circle, which at that moment, was yet to be joined by two Giants players. “The NFL is one of the few sports where Christian prayer is consistently displayed on the field of play between competitors after each and every game.”
