House Church Unplugged

All you need. Nothing you don't.

Remembering the Unborn

One area – and it is a sensitive one – is the lack of support given by the church today to parents who have lost pre-born children due to medical complications. Should not these tiny ones be given things like names and funerals – even burials, where practical?

Of course, many parents in this situation feel so much hurt and even shame that they would unlikely want it mentioned. So, I suppose that that is partly where the dilemma lies.

Carolynn and I have been here and, looking back, I don’t feel quite right about it. At the time we were part of an institutional church and I recall no discussions of what the church’s response would be in such circumstances. Now that we are involved in a house church setting we can study the matter as a group and perhaps have a memorial service.

Any light from God’s word or from your experiences?
