[Quick notice: We have a new film in the pipeline, a piece of content that we have no doubt is extremely important for the Body of Christ at large. We're needing some help with the practicalities/financial costs associated, so if you would like to help with this, to make it happen, and get more info ahead of release, please feel free to drop us a line. We very much value your interest/support.]
We return this week to our ongoing conversations with Dave Brennan of Brephos and the sensitive issue of IVF. As we have asked in our previous two episodes, (no. 17 & 20 in this season), is IVF ever OK?
You can also watch this conversation via YouTube here as a Premiere at 9pm GMT this evening. (Thank you for your patience while we're in the process of improving our videos).
This week, having introduced the subject of IVF and having spent some time in Scripture last time, we consolidate our "position" on this difficult issue.
We will also be responding to the BBC's new two-part drama revolving around the changing fertility landscape in Northern Ireland, Three Families, that starts a week today.
Listen to Dave Brennan and Nick and Mairi Franks discuss the general lay of the land of the Church in which this infinitely important question of IVF is being - or indeed not being - considered from a genuine biblical perspective:
- How are our Christian lives distinct from others who also would naturally want children?
- How do IVF and the abortion genocide relate to each other?
Here’s the Chris Richards article cited and this week's impromptu episode recorded with Richard Lucas, leader of the Scottish Family Party, in which we discuss related issues concerning children and young people and our responsibilities as mature disciples of Christ to use our voices to defend them.
Please do get in touch with your thoughts unless the basic courtesy/respect/tone that we've laboured to ensure in these podcasts isn't honoured/reciprocated. Thank you for the vast majority of folk who have done that with us.
If you would like to help support this podcast and the wider work we're pioneering, including efforts to improve our podcast videos, we would be very grateful as we increasingly find ourselves at capacity in more ways than one. You can give here.
Come, Lord Jesus!
