Christ in the Womb for September 7, 2014/The Word Made Flesh September 5-6, 2015
September 7 Bulletin The Word was made Flesh . . . Following Baby Jesus in the womb
The Baby will be able to hear by next week. The child sleeps and wakes, nestles in his favorite positions and stretches upon waking up. If Baby is delivered now, it would have a high chance of living. No one wants a Baby to deliver this early, but new treatment methods like ventilators, monitors and medication increase its chances of survival.
Baby’s approximate due date: December 25, 2014
The Word Made Flesh, September 5-6, 2015.
Ephesians 5 repeats an old saying from the very beginning of the Christian Era, common to the people Paul was writing to: "Wake from your slumber, arise from the Dead, and Christ will shine upon you". We are six months into the pregnancy of our little girl, and she is learning to sleep and wake. Nobody wants a baby delivered this early, but with modern medical treatment, she is her own person, and would survive if delivered this early. Her due date, however, remains the birthday of Our Lord, December 25th, 2015.
