Right to Life Sunday

This Sunday many churches will be focused on the sanctity of human life. Check out this post from Justin Taylor:

Tomorrow, as many of you know, is the 37th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. I’ll be posting an interview about how the decision can be overturned.

But let me commend for you a video that’s not about abortion per se, but rather about the dignity and value of human life. I’ve posted it before, but I’m doing so again, as it’s one of the most life-affirming, heart-rending videos I’ve ever seen.

I thank God for these parents who valued life and loved their son, and I think God for the short life of little Eliot Mooney, whom God is using to proclaim his glory.

I encourage you to watch the video and to pass it along.

Taylor also provides another post on what can be done to overturn Roe v. Wade.

God's Heart for Haiti

On Sunday I scrapped my Ephesians message and talked about Haiti and our response as Christians.

One major point of the message was to explain why we need to look at the pictures and think about the devastation in Haiti instead of simply moving on with our lives. I offer three reasons:
  1. Because we need to be shaken and moved.
  2. Because this is God's heart.
  3. Because we have the resources to help.
