Life Thoughts from Lutherans for Life

July 18 – Pentecost VIII (Proper 11B) – Abortion and assisted suicide may appear to be compassionate measures. But while they deaden the culture to some discomforts, they actually deny support to unborn and impaired persons. By contrast, Jesus has compassion on the whole multitude with no exceptions, because He perceives how the world has abandoned them (Mark 6:34). He feeds them instead of forsaking (Mark 6:41). And the Gospel extends abundant life from fertilization to forever.

Bags to Mats Update

We are taking a break from collecting bags until the end of the Summer.  This is good news because that means we have more than enough bags for what we need.  Our stores are overflowing!  Thank you to everyone for helping us with this blessing for the homeless.  Our next meeting is TODAY:  Friday, July 16 at 10:00 a.m.
