In 2017, the anniversary of the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in America falls on Sunday, January 22nd. It is important for Christians to raise a voice that defends and celebrates life on the date of this infamous decision. More than 57 million babies have been aborted in our country since that day. The Christian church has a better answer to unwanted pregnancy than abortion. We are called to respond with love, support, and life affirming action to alleviate the desperation and sense of being trapped that often leads women to choose abortion.
PPL does not wish to see churches limit their celebration that God is the Lord of Life to one Sunday per year, however. How much better it would be for a congregation to integrate the message of God's creation and love of the unborn, the aged, those with special needs, and those with limited capabilities throughout the year and in every aspect of church life. Every human life is created by God and redeemed by Jesus Christ and is to be valued and respected as set apart for the glory and use of God.
PPL's bulletin insert is available to churches for free download and printing. A special Life Sunday page has links to sermon resources, an idea sheet for planning a life service, a Bible Study and an adult curriculum to assist churches in promoting the sanctity of human life any time of the year. Please contact us for additional information and to share your ideas on giving witness to the sanctity of human life in your church.
