January 21 is Sanctity of Human Life Sunday, and the CRC Office of Social Justice is offering resources for your church to honor the day, including bulletin inserts, a prayer, and a responsive reading. The world tells us that a person’s life is only as valuable as the circumstances into which they are born. But this year, we are focusing on Jeremiah 1:5 to remember that God knows us, God appoints us, and God blesses us to be a blessing. So, we are called to seek flourishing for every person created in the image of God. Visit crcna.org/life for worship resources and to learn more about this year’s focus. The deadline for ordering bulletin inserts is December 18.
Scripture reminds us over and over that God uses “strangers” and immigrants to bring a blessing. On Sunday, December 10, CRC congregations around the country will join together to remember the blessing of the "stranger" throughout scripture and give thanks for our immigrant and refugee neighbors today. Will you join us by using this litany in worship on that day? To download or order a free copy of the litany visit justice.crcna.org/immigrants-are-blessing-litany
