Today, my mom, brother, and I went to a special service for Sanctity of Life Sunday. A Professor of Theology was giving a special message on Psalm 139. He wasn't the main Pastor of the church. I looked online a few weeks before today, looking for churches around the area who were having special services, and this is the only one I found! And I live in the capital city of my state. It makes me really sad that more churches aren't speaking out on the topic of abortion. The CEO from a local Pregnancy Center shared some, which was really powerful, and she said this church was the only one who asked her to come speak! If the Church isn't standing up for the unborn and speaking out for LIFE, then who is?! I suggest spreading the word to your Pastors and telling them the significance of this day and how they can take a stand for LIFE each year. But, it shouldn't end with just one day a year. We as the Church of Christ need to be pouring ourselves out for the cause of the unborn. We need to be giving our time, money, and whatever else God asks of us to Pregnancy Centers, homes for pregnant teenage girls, etc. Don't just sit around waiting for something to happen - pray and ask the Lord how He wants you to move and be obedient. Ask for God's heart for the unborn, the men and women in unplanned pregnancies, and those already affected by abortion.
After the service, I spoke with the lady from the Pregnancy Center about the possibility of volunteering there. I am praying that if this is the Center where the Lord wants me that He will make it happen.
