Dear Friend of Life,
The winds have shifted. The tide has turned. A new day has dawned, and there’s no stopping it now. This is going to be HUGE! The 2016 U. S. presidential election? Hardly. Life-affirming legislation and court cases? No, not that. Historic public support for respecting and protecting every human person? Try again. Congregations educating and communities caring? Donors advocating and volunteers acting? Think even bigger.
God Has Come Among Us – The Almighty has descended to the earth! The Maker and Master dwells in our world! Our Creator has become incarnate, God’s own Son conceived as an embryo in a human womb and born a humble baby Savior. Heavenly help has arrived and abides. He has assumed our flesh and has undertaken our cause. He has located His kingdom, His compassion, and His authority in our very midst. Lord God has gotten Himself involved in our experiences and circumstances. Neither the dread of any doubters nor the desire of all the enemies together can undo it. Sin and death don’t stand a chance anymore. Love can’t fail! Life can’t lose!
Lutherans For Life is rushing to share the news of this Christmas Gospel. We are pushing back against suffering, distress, regret, and grief. We’re manning the front lines, meeting violence’s offensives head-on. We’re advancing the leading edge of God’s grace and forgiveness deep into the darkest corners of the devil’s shadowy domains.
Join us in this joyful adventure! Enlist in Jesus Christ’s victorious mission! Your Christmas donation will be a partnership that greatly cheers our spirits, but how much happier will it make the hurting hearts to whom we extend heavenly hope! In fact, we’ll get your gift going right to work changing lives and saving eternities!

Other Ways to Give Now
Owen’s Mission is a very special project of Lutherans For Life. The goal of this project is to honor Jesus by presenting a set of Touch of Life fetal models to every Lutheran elementary and high school in the country. (That’s 1078 schools affecting 139,000 students!) We want students to understand the God-given value of each life from the moment of conception. We want students to be motivated by what God has done as our Creator, Redeemer, and Sanctifier that gives value to life. We want students to value themselves and to value others as persons because of this God-given value.
