LCMS Life Ministries and Lutherans For Life both are offering resources designed to help congregations observe “Life Sunday” on Jan. 18 or an alternate date.
To download the resources, go to www.lcms.org/lifelibrary.
“Good News For Life!” is the theme for the 2009 Life Sunday observance, which is designed to coincide with the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Jan. 22, 1973, decision that legalized abortion.
“The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not just Good News. It’s Good News for life! It’s Good News that brings life, speaks of life, speaks to life, and changes life! And we are called to let it shine!” LFL Executive Director James I. Lamb says in a cover letter with a sample mailing of the new materials that LFL sent in October to congregations, LFL groups, and other “friends of life.” LFL is a pan-Lutheran organization based in Nevada, Iowa.
LFL’s new Life Sunday materials include five sermons:
All five sermons may be downloaded free from the LFL Web site at www.lutheransforlife.org.
Other new items for 2009 that may be ordered separately are:
