Revd Dr Graham Stanton, Mathew Hale Public Library Ministry Adviser and the Dean of the Centre for Children’s and Youth Ministry and Lecturer in Practical Theology at Ridley College in Melbourne will conduct a practical workshop on leading Baptism services.
One of the most radical verses in the bible, one that changed the course of history but now forgotten is Genesis 1:27 which says: “God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” In January my daughter-in-law lost the baby in her womb. It was 21 weeks old. He was given the name Matthias Peter Begbie. It may seem a strange question for us, but in our strange new world it is a significant to ask, was this embryo human?
