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

If you have questions be sure to give them a call.

Life Thoughts (Lutherans for Life)

August 2 – Pentecost IX (Proper 13A) – “I can’t afford this baby.” None of us can. Only He Who sends the mouths sends their meat. And He has shown both ability and willingness to conjure it out of thin air when necessary (Matthew 14:20). If He doesn’t use our profound poverties as excuse for executions, how can we allow it for anyone else? Christians have better ideas than abortion. Fund food pantries. Staff pregnancy help centers. We take it seriously when Jesus says, “You give them something to eat” (Matthew 14:16).

“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.
