Presbyterians Protecting Life
Music is one of the most powerful means by which Christians rehearse and retell the longing of Advent and the story of Christ's birth. The themes of waiting, longing, labor, and life are woven together in ways that have helped my spirit and imagination to grasp the immensity and import of God's act in sending Jesus to take on human flesh. Advent's themes of longing and labor and life came together in amazing and intricate layers in the text of a wonderful choral anthem, Almost There,* with words and music by Michael W. Smith, Wes King, and Amy Grant.

Life Sunday Resources

Many churches set aside one Sunday in January to observe the God-given value of human life. PPL has resources that can help you plan a special celebration of life worship service.
January 22, 2018 will mark the 45th anniversary since Roe v. Wade legalized abortion. Since that time over 57,000 American babies have been aborted. January is a perfect time for churches to plan a worship service that celebrates God's gift of life in response. It is also an excellent time to take a special offering for PPL to help us equip churches to champion life. You may want to take a collection to benefit your local pregnancy care center or begin a church adoption fund to assist a couple in your church that wants to build a family by providing a permanent home for a waiting child.
