New For Life Resource from Lutherans For Life 

How Luther Nailed It on Life Issues by Rev. Michael W. Salemink - Life issues didn’t arise overnight. Their frequent connection to medical technology can make them seem like recent developments, and advances in understanding physiology and pharmaceuticals have made abortion and euthanasia more efficient and available of late. But these circumstances have been causing society’s difficulties—and providing opportunities to proclaim the Gospel—since ancient times … Martin Luther also applied his voice to life issues. As we celebrate the Reformation’s quincentennial, listening to him can still enlighten us. His view of family matters proved revolutionary in its time. Luther promoted marriage, encouraged childbearing, and praised parenting. He concluded even unborn babies qualified as full-fledged human beings.

After the Abortion There is Hope in His Healing (updated) – This booklet offers hope to those who are struggling with an abortion decision. “Today can be a new beginning for you. God doesn’t want you to carry around the baggage of your sins. He doesn’t desire that you be anxious or angry. He wants to lift you from your shame and guilt. He wants to restore you to Himself . . . Through the power of Christ’s death and resurrection, you are set free to rejoice in the newness of life!” By Linda Bartlett

Word of Hope (updated) – Abortion. It’s so painful. It’s an experience that goes beyond our physical and emotional being. It penetrates deep into the heart of our spiritual life. The pain just doesn’t go away. This brochure offers information on LFL’s Word of Hope post-abortion ministry, which offers confidential post-abortion referral, counseling, and reconciliation. “For those who have had an abortion, there is a need for a word of hope”

Tiny Hands that Hold My Heart celebrates life by chronicling the nine months of pregnancy with breathtaking photography from inside the womb and relevant scriptures. It was written as one message for two unique audiences. Tiny Hands was written as a gift book for expecting mothers who are excited and waiting in anticipation for the birth of their baby. Tiny Hands was also written as a booklet to hand out free to women facing crisis pregnancies. Pregnancy is an emotional time and should be a time of rejoicing; however that is not always the case. In the United States, one in every two pregnancies is unexpected or unplanned and one in every three pregnancies is terminated by abortion. Within the pages of both the gift book and the crisis booklet is a message of hope and encouragement. God's Word does not change—whether you are in a situation of great excitement or one of great despair. God has had a plan for your baby since day one! (“Tiny Hands that Hold My Heart” was produced by Tiny Hands Ministries, Inc., Concord, North Carolina.)

Christ the Life of All the Living - A Lenten Devotional Booklet - “As we approach Good Friday, the 40 days of Lent are a time of self-discipline. These devotions aim to help us discipline our minds so that when we see the struggles in our own lives, we see the life of Christ working all to good; so that when we see our neighbor, no matter his skin color or gender or level of development, we see the life of Christ, Savior of the nations; so that when we see the boasting of death, we see the life of Christ, triumphant in resurrection.” Rev. A. Daniel Guagenti, Holy Cross Lutheran Church, Shelbyville, Kentucky 

Biblical Biology –You were you from the moment of conception. In this brochure, Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb takes a look at how we came to be through “Biblical Biology.”

Life Issues and the Pew – Rev. Dr. James I. Lamb writes, “When I was active on the National Pro-Life Religious Council, we did a workshop every year at the National Right to Life Convention entitled, ‘Here are the sheep! Where is the shepherd?’ It was an effort to help people in the pew encourage their pastor to address the life issues from the pulpit. Some time ago I authored a brochure with a similar goal called ‘Life Issues and the Pulpit’ ... One year, during the discussion following our workshop, a pastor spoke up. ‘Hey! Here’s a shepherd! Where are the sheep!’ He was expressing his frustration with people in the pew not supporting him when he did address life issues from the pulpit. So as a sequel to ‘Life Issues and the Pulpit,’ I offer ‘Life Issues and the Pew.’”

Questions and Answers Concerning the End of Life – The public promotion of physician-assisted suicide will lead to more pressure on states to enact pro-assisted-suicide legislation. This can lead Christians to ask questions.

The Soul Wound of Abortion – For all the millions of walking wounded in our society, for those who have had an abortion or have been affected by an abortion decision, there is a Word of Hope—Lutherans For Life’s healing ministry. Word of Hope connects men and women “soul wounded” through the act of abortion to the forgiveness and healing that comes only through knowing that God loves you and sent His Son to free you from the guilt of all sin—including abortion. The author, Diane E. Schroeder, is a former president of Lutherans For Life.

Three Inches, Two Ounces - Reflections on Jesus in the womb based on Luke 1:56 –Jesus, who was formed in the womb of Mary, who began life smaller than a grain of salt, grew to three inches long and weighed two ounces, became a newborn in the Bethlehem manger, and lived a sinless life to become a 33-year-old who hung on a cross outside of Jerusalem. He did this so that you might be saved from the power of the devil, so that you might receive forgiveness of sins, and so that you might spend eternal life with Him in Paradise. The author, Rev. Michael J. Schmidt, is pastor at Peace Lutheran Church, Natoma, Kansas, and First Lutheran Church, Plainville, Kansas.

Together for Good DVD -- “Together for Good” is a movie written by Pastor Dave Ahlman, Senior Pastor of Peace Lutheran Church in Arvada, Colorado. The movie is loosely based on the adoption story of Pastor Ahlman and his wife, Beth, which took place in 2004. Also included with the DVD is a Bible study based on the movie.
