lament and hope

October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month. 

While maternal and infant deaths have decreased worldwide, such deaths have significantly increased in the United States due to systemic and social inequities.

As United Methodists we affirm the sacred worth of all people and, “We commit our Church to continue to provide nurturing ministries to those who terminate a pregnancy, to those in the midst of a crisis pregnancy, and to those who give birth.“ (2016 Book of Discipline, Social Principles ¶161.L)

We invite you to join us virtually on Wednesday Oct. 12, 2022 at 12:10PM EST for a Service of Lament and Hope for Pregnancy and Infant Loss to honor and recognize those who have experienced such loss. This service will be hosted by The General Board of Church and Society in collaboration with United Methodist for Reproductive Justice with opening remarks from Rep. Nikema Williams of Georgia.

We pray that you will join us for this sacred time of lament as well as of prayer for a world in which such loss is no longer our reality.
