13 For you formed my inward parts;
you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.
14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.[a]
Wonderful are your works;
my soul knows it very well.
-Psalm 139:13-14

Life Thoughts (Lutherans for Life)

October 25 – Pentecost XXI (Proper 25A) – Scripture highly praises motherhood (1 Thessalonians 2:7-8) and fatherhood (1 Thessalonians 2:11-12). The Holy Spirit inspires the Apostle Paul to use them as words for the love of one Christian for another. We protect each other like fathers and take care of each other like mothers. If this clearly excludes the killing of even a neighbor (Leviticus 19:16), how much more shall we cherish the lives of children, however young, and parents, however old!

“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.

Take a look at our monthly Newsletter to see what all’s going on and how we can bring Jesus to Illinois.

Here is a hymn written by a local pastor that may also be a blessing to your day as you think about God’s gift of life.
