This sermon continues our exploration of what it means to be made in the image of God.   One aspect of our image is the creation of the human body by God, a deliberate act of God which gives rise to the body’s intrinsic value.   We live in a culture that rejects the biblical account of it’s origin and it’s Creator.  The result is devaluation of the body with disastrous consequences.   We may cite examples of careless or cruel disregard for the body by many in our world, but are we not also guilty of blindness to those around us whose value we do ignore or suppress?  (partial recording)
