Family Planning Sermon and Messaging Guide for Faith Communities
This guide is designed to support faith communities, congregations and religious leaders who want to improve family planning (FP) literacy and acceptance through sermons and other messaging opportunities. The sermon guide addresses how religious texts and sacred traditions can help break the silence on FP and correct misinformation. The guide addresses sacred texts and norms from Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, the Baha’i faith, and Sikhism and includes messages that can be tailored to each faith. The messages can be delivered in a variety of settings, including at worship services, faith community ceremonies, or other events.
