Sermon 19 Jan 2020  (Our Lord the Giver of Life)

For what do you lay down your life? by Fr. Dana

Simple Summary:  Abortion is a problem of epidemic proportions, but it is only a symptom.  Everyone, every day, lays down (sacrifices) lesser things for the sake of greater things; this is a basic principle of life.  The central issue is what you use as the basis on which you determine what is greater and what is lesser.  You can lay down important things to make your life more comfortable and enjoyable … or you can lay down your life for the most important thing – Jesus.  Abortion happens when one lays down another person’s life for the sake of their own.
