The Shofar is the ancient trumpet which called the people of God to prayer, repentance, sacrifice and war.

Stephen Green says: 'These are new and demanding times for Northern Ireland, and during my visit to the Province I shall be encouraging Christians to lift up their voices and call for repentance and a turning back to Jesus Christ, who is King of kings and Lord of lords.

'The old certainties, it seems to me, are changing, and Christians need to be aware where the new threats are coming from. Who would have thought, for instance, that the first civil partnership would be registered in Northern Ireland, or that Ulster's primary school children would be the first in the UK to have their innocence destroyed through mandatory sex education? There are moves afoot to impose the horrors of legal abortion on the Province. Will the Church have the conviction to stand against that?

I have a vision of a society where God's law is preferred to secular ideas, and where there is peace and tranquillity. In such a society, individuals have responsibilities, married couples stay married, they bring up Godly children, perversion is not paraded through the streets, the State wields the sword of true justice, and God's blessing is poured out. As the Psalm says:

 “That our sons may be as plants grown up in their youth; that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace: That our garners may be full, affording all manner of store: that our sheep may bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our streets: That our oxen may be strong to labour; that there be no breaking in, nor going out; that there be no complaining in our streets. Happy is that people, that is in such a case: yea, happy is that people, whose God is the LORD.” Psalm 144:12-15 (KJV)
