We feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be a part of Sanctity of Life Sunday at our home church! Our Pastor delivered a phenomenal message focusing on the marginalized in our society, including the pre-born, the orphan, and the widow.
The congregation was clearly moved as Rev. Bill focused on having controlled mouths, compassionate hands, and clean hearts... the entirety of James 1:27. So often we focus on the 'orphans and widows' portion of this verse that defines pure religion, but leave out the part about keeping ourselves 'unstained by the world'. Pastor Bill truly tied all three pieces of this verse together so beautifully as he challenged the listeners to put their faith into action!
An attendee commented by saying, "I think we may have just changed the future of our church!"
As a window into the plight of the orphan, this fantastic video on Ethiopia was shared... not sure about everyone else, but we definitely couldn't hold it together during this video! :)
