Sanctity of Human Life (SOHL) Sunday is a day that churches across the nation spend celebrating the precious value of human life. This year, SOHL Sunday was observed on January 21, 2024, but New Life devoted the entire month to honor life by offering free resources and engaging with church communities. Our goal is always to invite churches into our ministry and encourage them in their unique calling to honor life as they live for the Gospel.
This January, we centered our SOHL message on the truth found in the book of Job: Through times of great suffering and times of great joy, we are called to praise the Lord for the life He gives us. Leah, our Rochester Development Coordinator, shared a beautiful devotion to this theme. Check out our social media post from January 3, 2024, to hear the encouraging message. (Facebook, Instagram)
“The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised” Job 1:20-22
