State Taking Comments on Speed Limit Increase

Earlier this year the Arkansas Legislature passed Act 1097 authorizing the state Highway Commission to increase the speed limits on some of Arkansas’ highways.

According to the act, speeds on Interstate highways could be increased to 75 miles per hour; speed limits on state highways could be increased from 60 to 65 miles per hour.

Family Council does not have a position on highway speed limits, but we want to make sure our friends are aware the Department of Transportation is taking public comments on this issue.

If you would like to weigh in on whether or not speed limits ought to be increased, you can submit your thoughts to the State here.

Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally Coming October 9

Below is an announcement about a prayer rally coming to Little Rock this October.

Victory Over Violence is hosting a city-wide Prayer Rally to gather the churches of Central Arkansas to pray for peace.

We will worship together, pray together, and hear from key leaders about opportunities for the church to meet the needs of our city.

The event will be held Monday, October 9, at 7 p.m. at War Memorial Stadium. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

The Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally is a significant opportunity for the churches of Little Rock to put faith into action. Our churches are an integral part of the community, and it is time for us to come together and engage the need. Governor Asa Hutchinson will be among those speaking at the October 9 event.

“Our churches have always been a force for change in the community,” said Victory Over Violence co-founder Austin Kellerman. “We’re at a point where we need that force to help improve the lives of people across Little Rock. If we’re going to tackle this problem, we need people of faith to lead the way and put ‘love of neighbor’ in action.”

“We are inviting all Little Rock Pastors to participate and mobilize your church to attend the Victory Over Violence Prayer Rally,” said Logan Bloom of Arkansas for Christ. “In moments like these, God calls the church to gather as a regional body with a regional response.”

We would like to include all attending pastor in the program. Pastors are asked to RSVP if you are available to attend.

See “Mully” in Theaters This October

What happens when a six-year-old boy in Kenya is abandoned by his family and left to raise himself on the streets?

The documentary “Mully” has the answer.

It’s the true story of Charles Mully, whose unlikely rise to wealth and power leaves him questioning his own existence, searching for meaning in life. Against the better judgment of family and community, Mully sets out to help orphaned children across Kenya. Charles Mully risks everything and sets in motion a series of events that is nothing short of astonishing.

This documentary is coming to theaters soon for only three days on October 3, 4, and 5.

It’s showing at eight theaters in or close to Arkansas. You can find more information at
