Life Thoughts (Lutherans for Life)

May 9 – Easter VI/Mother’s Day – “My body, my choice,” says a sinful world. “You did not choose me, but I chose you” (John 15:16), answers a loving God. Motherhood comes about by His gift, not because of our will. Choice forces us to look out only for number one, but grace invites us to “love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12). Praise the Lord for mother’s love!

“SID” stands for “Southern Illinois District.” Within The LCMS the state of Illinois is split into three districts: Northern, Central, and Southern. This group works in the Southern chunk of Illinois.

“Advocates for Life”?

The SID “Advocates for Life” (or A4L) are Lutheran Christians who work together with various groups operating in the SID to speak up for all life from womb to tomb. While awareness of legal statutes and such is a part of this group’s work, the bigger goal is to bring the message of Jesus Christ to all people in all circumstances of life.

Jesus is the only one who brings true peace, forgiveness, and eternal life.

Why does a group like this need to exist?

Because people need to hear about the hope and peace we have in Jesus.
