The sacredness of human life

July 16, 2017 Speaker: Pastor Greg Goostree Series: Exodus: freed to be God's people

Scripture: Exodus 20:13

Towards the end of the message, Greg showed the following video. Feel free to watch it when you get to that point in the message.

 

 

Participating in the Dorothy Fox lunch buddy program is an excellent way to communicate to kids how valuable they are. If you are interested, please contact Alyssa in the church office. 

Also not a part of the recording, Greg shared this quote from C. S. Lewis at the end of the message:

“It may be possible for each to think too much of his own potential glory hereafter; it is hardly possible for him to think too often or too deeply about that of his neighbor. The load, or weight, or burden of my neighbor's glory should be laid daily on my back, a load so heavy that only humility can carry it, and the backs of the proud will be broken. ... 

It is in light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations -- these are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit. ... Next to the Blessed Sacrament itself, your neighbor is the holiest object presented to your senses.” 

-C. S. Lewis, The Weight of Glory
