''WHAT IS SOCIAL JUSTICE? Have you heard the words "social justice," but you were never quite sure what it meant?Sounds good, but ..... is it?

MVCI is please to have this month's guest speaker, Lisa Snaufer, share her presentation on "Social Justice."Lisa and her husband Joe live just north of Dayton.They attend Christian Life Center where Lisa teaches the IOTC 12-week class on the U.S. Constitution on a regular basis.She is well versed in the founding documents and how they apply to us as U.S. citizens.

The term "social justice" is often used in government, politics, and in academia, so it is important for us to understand the definition, the thinking, the logic and the goals behind the words.It is also important when conversingwith someone who uses this term, that we understand what they are really saying and how best to reply in the framework of our own Constitutional and Judeo-Christian beliefs.

Special Two Hour Class**75 Years ago, on this Day the Normandy Landings began on the beaches of Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno, Sword.Operation code-name “Overlord” began on Tuesday, June 6, 1944 and it became the largest seaborne invasion in history.It became known as D-Day-the goal to liberate German-occupied France from Nazi control and lay the foundation for an Allied Victory on the Western Front throughout Europe.

The biggest names in history were all involved in this planning– Prime Minister Winston Churchill, General Dwight David Eisenhower, Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Bernard Montgomery was named as commander of British Forces. Leading the German forces was Field Marshal Erwin Rommel,The Desert FoxCommanding Rommel was Adolf Hitler leader of the Nazi Party. Hitler rose to power to become dictator of Germany, serving as Chancellor from 1933 and Führer from 1934. During his dictatorship from 1933 to 1945, he initiated World War II in Europe by invading Poland in September 1939.

The amphibious landings on Normandy were preceded by extensive aerial and naval bombardment and an airborne assault-the landing of 24,000 US, British, and Canadian airborne troops shortly after midnight. Allied infantry and armoured divisions began landing on the coast of France at 06:30 am. Planning for the operation had begun in 1943.

This class at EmpowerU will be an explanation of the strategy of D-Day.How did this invasion happen? What was the plan?Who were the personalities?What equipment was used? Did everything go according to plan?How did the Allies deceive the Nazi’s to allow this great invasion to happen? How many men were lost?Be ready for the large amount of information and pictures we’ll throw at you this night as we look at one of the most significant days in the History of the United States-D-Day!

EmpowerU presents, Reagan and the Brandenburg Gate Speech

When: Wednesday, June 12, 2019, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Where: EmpowerU Studio at Frame USA. 225 Northland Blvd Cincinnati, Ohio 45246


EmpowerU will watch one of the most famous speeches of all time 32 years after date that Ronald Reagan delivered the Brandenburg Gate speech.The Brandenburg Gate, was built between 1788 and 1791 by Prussian King Frederick William II as a key entry point to the city of Berlin. In 1987 it stood as a symbol of communism in the West when the wall went up in 1961 access to the gate now located in East Berlin was cut off.

The “tear down this wall” speech was not the first time Ronald Reagan had addressed the issue of the Berlin Wall: in a visit to West Berlin in June 1982, he’d stated “I’d like to ask the Soviet leaders one question “Why is the wall there?”, and in 1986, 25 years after the construction of the wall, in response to West German newspaper Bild-Zeitung asking when he thought the wall could be “torn down”, Reagan said, “I call upon those responsible to dismantle it today.”The speech was also a source of considerable controversy within the Reagan administration itself, with several senior staffers and aides advising against the phrase, saying anything that might cause further East-West tensions or potential embarrassment to Gorbachev, with whom President Reagan had built a good relationship, should be omitted.

American officials in West Germany and presidential speechwriters, including Peter Robinson, thought otherwise. Robinson traveled to West Germany to inspect potential speech venues, and gained an overall sense that the majority of West Berliners opposed the wall.On Monday, May 18, 1987, President Reagan met with his speechwriters and responded to the speech by saying, “I thought it was a good, solid draft.” White House Chief of Staff Howard Baker objected, saying it sounded “extreme” and “unpresidential”, and Deputy U.S. National Security Advisor Colin Powell agreed. Nevertheless, Reagan liked the passage, saying, “I think we’ll leave it in.”

Join EmpowerU as we watch the entire speech on film 31 years later.We will set up our conversation with what was going on in the Country before, and after to give you historical perspective.This speech is as meaningful today as it was back on June 12, 1987.
