Dear Friend of Life, 

“His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it” (Revelation 12:4).

The demons are laughing.

Officials expelled a life-affirming community from the county fair this summer. The community known as “Life” had received prior approval for their display. It featured photos of babies growing in the womb and medically accurate hands-on fetal models (just like the ones many Lutherans For Life Teams and Chapters use). Volunteers at the booth were offering friendly and uplifting conversation about pregnancy and parenting. Most of their visitors appreciated the positive and compassionate outreach.

Then a few evening passersby became “aggressively vocal”—about abortion. When Life staff arrived the next morning, authorities had torn the stand down. One local councilman said, “It’s a community festival—that includes women who have had to make really hard family-planning decisions who don’t want plastic fetuses in their faces.” Life’s education director stressed that their presence is gentle, and their message is never aggressive. They just want to help women, but fair organizers claim it goes against their values (“Government-Run Fair Kicks Out Pro-Life Group,”, 7/23/18).

And the demons are laughing. They’ve deceived the world into believing death offers a solution to suffering. They’ve convinced our culture that life issues mean anger and guilt. They’ve captured hearts and clouded minds with fear.

You can change that. You can do something about it.

Did you know that the angels are dancing? The demons are laughing, but the angels are dancing. The angels are dancing because Almighty God still shares grace. The Heavenly Father still holds human beings precious, all of them. Our Lord and Savior still finds human lives special, every one of us.

You can’t shut the demons up. But you can drown them out.

Will you help us reach grieving, lonely hearts with the joy that is louder than officials or fear? Will you help us touch frightened, threatened lives with the hope that is bolder than authorities or anger?

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.
