Talk: Christians facing the issue of abortion

For many Christians, abortion is one of those great unmentionables. We can treat it as something too sensitive — too impolite — to discuss, so we ignore it and hope it goes away. But it’s a critically important issue and it is vital that Christian people think about the subject in a way that is compassionate, relevant, practical and in tune with the historic Christian faith.

In November 2017 I preached a sermon together with my wife Celia on this topic at All Souls Church, in central London, as part of a series called Christians Facing Issues Today. You can listen to it below:
