Lutherans from around the country came together in Washington, D.C., on January 18 for the 2019 March for Life. Deaconess Rachel Geraci, mission and ministry director for Lutherans For Life, met a Lutheran high school student who was attending the March for the first time. He told Rachel he came to the March thinking he would have the opportunity to debate with the opposition as he appreciates a good debate. However, he realized soon after the March began that this was as much a celebration of life as it was a protest against abortion. Although it wasn’t what he was expecting, this student realized how wonderful it is when people can come together in such a positive manner.

This was the fifth March for Life for LFL Executive Director, Rev. Michael W. Salemink. He said, “I’m always moved by the fellowship, the joy and hope, the courage and compassion. My parents and my son came along and especially enjoyed the Lutheran witness of hymns, creeds, and prayers to proclaim how precious every human life is to our God and Father. And there were plenty of participants younger than my son as well as older than my parents. They all demonstrated genuine love, and the enemy has no answer for that.”
