When I received the recent issue of Charity and Children, I was reminded that life is sacred. From the womb to the tomb, human life is an expression of the Creator. Here is what the article said:
All life is created by God. Human life is created in
His image. It is distinct and valuable—from conception to the final breath, from the first heartbeat to the last. North Carolina Baptists unite through the many ministries of Baptist Children’s Homes to advocate for the unborn through Christian Adoption Services; to give a hand up to families through Greater Vision Outreach; to provide children loving care through group cottages, wilderness camps, and foster care and adoption; to help special needs adults reach their highest level of independence; and to insure the frail aging are not alone through North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry. We honor God and join hands with you this month to observe the Sanctity of Human Life.

I pray that you will speak up for life and speak out against the culture of death! But, do more; get involved. Mountain Area Pregnancy Services has an office in Waynesville that is always worth investing time and money to support. Then, through our Baptist State Convention, you see how you can partner with pro-life efforts.
Yours for Life,
Dennis Thurman, Mission Strategist
