Registration is open for the 2015 Lutherans For Life (LFL) National Conference — set for Oct. 30-31 in Petersburg, Ky., under the theme “Created, Redeemed, Called” (from Is. 43:1).
“The theme focuses on the value God gives to human life. You cannot find three better words to encapsulate that value,” said the Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb, who has announced that he will retire at the end of 2015 as LFL’s executive director. (See related story, “Salemink to succeed Lamb as LFL director.”) “Every human being is someone created by God, someone redeemed by Jesus and someone God either has called or desires to call into an eternal relationship with Him. When you have the very power of the Triune God giving life value, nothing else really matters!”
The conference will begin at 5 p.m. on Oct. 30 with the opening worship service.
Conference-session topics will include:
- “The Gospel in Genesis,” with Ken Ham, president/CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis, which operates the Creation Museum in Petersburg;
- “Fearfully and Wonderfully Made,” with Dr. David Menton of Petersburg, who is a former professor at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis;
- “Evolution vs. the Sanctity of Human Life,” with Col. John Eidsmoe, professor of Law at the Oak Brook College of Law and Government Policy;
- “Faith in the Halls of Power,” with Timothy Goeglein, vice-president for External Relations at Focus on the Family, Washington, D.C.;
- a “Creation Concert,” with singer/songwriter Buddy Davis; and
- “Created, Redeemed, Called — The Trinitarian Value of Human Life,” with Lamb.
During the two-day event, attendees also will have the opportunity to learn about the future of the organization and hear from the Rev. Michael Salemink, LFL’s incoming executive director.
The following pre-conference activities on Oct. 30 also are planned:
- a tour of the Creation Museum (also available Oct. 31);
- a seminar on Christian estate planning with John Hawkins of Cedar Park, Texas; and
- a seminar on “life teams” with Lori Trinche of Burr Ridge, Ill.
Until Sept. 15, conference registration is $100 for individuals, $50 for students and $35 for children ages 6 to 12. Children 5 and under are free.
Registration includes admission to the Creation Museum.
