Sanctity of Life Sunday 2018


God gives life! God preserves life! God asks us to be good stewards not only of our life, but of the lives of those around us. Unfortunately sin brings not only death (destruction of life) but also confusion of how we can be good stewards of God-given life. In our society today abortion is legal, physician assisted suicide is becoming legal and viewed by many as acceptable, discrimination (thinking of one life better than another), sex trafficing and similar slavery issues (seeing life as just a consumer product) and many other issues have so corrupted our view of LIFE, God-given life. 
This Sunday, January 21, we will recognize "Sanctity of Life Sunday" and be reminded how precious every life is becasue it is a gift of God. Many congregations across the world will observe Sanctity of Life Sunday some time in January. Come and hear how precious your life, and the life of others, is in God's eyes.
