A Person is a Person, No Matter How Small

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

Very recently there have been very important landmark decisions by the United States Supreme Court in regard to the sanctity of human life and the right to prayer. Rather than speaking to these decisions myself, I am including two documents from our Synodical President. First, a statement from President Harrison on the Dobbs v. Jackson, which overturns the Roe v. Wade decision in regard to unborn human life. Second, a joint letter from President Harrison, President Schroeder of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS), and President Odenberger of the Evangelical Lutheran Synod (ELS) to United States Attorney General Merrick Garland and the Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights Kristen Clarke regarding the violent attacks against Pro-Life clinics and churches.

Please take the time to read both letters. Click the links (shaded text) to access the letters.

In the month of July, we think a great deal about freedom and the cost of that freedom. Freedom is not free. It has been fought for, and it has been died for, and we all must continue to fight for our freedoms, or we will lose them.

Jesus fought and died for our freedom from sin, death, and the devil. In faith, we continue to fight against those same forces, lest we submit and give in to them, relinquishing our freedoms, and finding ourselves under slavery to them again.

So, continue to fight against the evils that we deplore, and continue to embrace the freedoms that we have received as a gift from Christ our Savior!

In Christ’s love,

Pastor Paul Pett
