There are few issues as divisive in our country as abortion. For many people, their political choices narrow down to how their candidate votes on this single issue. If someone is public about their views it almost immediately gets them pigeon-holed as one of “us” or one of “them. Most churches have drawn the line on one side or the other about abortion which is somewhat understandable given that the issue is much more serious than how a person feels about round-a-bouts in traffic circles. How can Highlands Church be of one mind in Christ since we value people who may identify as Pro-life and others who identify as Pro-choice and still others who aren’t ready to pick a side? Can we share the mind of Christ and be one in love while we may disagree strongly with one another on various issues and beliefs? We dare to think so!
1 Corinthians 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
