The Bishop of Carlisle has said that blood and organ donation should be part of the “sacrificial offering” Christians are called on to make.
“That ‘sacrificial offering’ is usually associated with time, money and gifts. But it applies just as much to the blood that flows in our veins and the organs that are such an intrinsic part of our bodies,” the Bishop says.
These comments comes from a three day meeting of Church of England bishops who will be debating blood and organ donation, as well as the ongoing subject of homosexuality and same-sex marriage.
The article about the Church debating whether Christians should be encouraged to donate organs also refers to a Christian organisation called Flesh and Blood which campaigns for Christian churches to promote organ and blood donation.
