From the Heart

-Susan Skoglund, Executive Director

January is Sanctity of Human Life month, and on either Sunday the 19th or the 26th we encourage Pastors and Churches to highlight this as a day of remembrance.  It’s certainly worth remembering over 54 million lives lost since Roe V. Wade (41 years ago); but also the millions saved as a result of ministries like Pregnancy Resources who offer hope and help.  You all are a part of the solution to ending abortion, as are the churches in our community who support us.  Thank you!

Why sanctity of human life?  Human life was sanctified or set apart from all other life by God at creation when he made male and female alone “In His Image”.  As the Lord is a triune being - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; we also are triune beings - body, soul (mind, will, and emotions), and spirit.  Our spirit sets us apart from the
animals.

When a sacred life in the womb is destroyed, it’s an assault against the very image of God.  As we recognize and celebrate human life this month let’s remember that loving one another is at the core - the response that Jesus exemplified and even prayed for.  As we love and respect everyone around us -even those who oppose us - we are doing His will and modeling our respect and love for all human life.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – John 10:10
