LIFE THOUGHTS FOR LUTHERANS


November 14 – Pentecost XXV (Proper 28B)
– Little time remains for repentance now that fathers deliver children to death and children rise up against parents (Mark 13:12). We have the assurance that the Holy Spirit speaks salvation through our witness to the sanctity of life (Mark 13:11). Let us stir up one another to love (Hebrews 10:24) by declaring that Jesus saves from the sin of abortion (Hebrews 10:17-18).
