New Resources Posted for Rachel Sabbath Initiative
The Religious Institute and national religious leaders call on congregations and denominations across a range of faith traditions to raise awareness of the more than 350,000 women and girls that die every year as a result of preventable complications of pregnancy and childbirth by observing a Rachel Sabbath in your congregation.
This could be as simple as including a prayer of the day in worship, or could include a sermon and/or religious education on maternal health and mortality. There are many resources available here to help worship leaders, religious educators, and social action committees draw attention to global maternal health and access to family planning.
