On Sunday, January 17, St. Luke celebrated Sanctity of Human Life Sunday by inviting one of its former members, Lori Driggs, back to share her story in dealing with abortion. She and her husband and six other members of the If Not for Grace ministry team shared how they had experienced God’s forgiveness, healing and restoration after having an abortion. The message came through loud and clear that God is one who reaches out to the hurting in spite of our sin. He is a merciful, life-changing God that gives a fresh start to all who turn to Him.
