Lutherans for Life – Life-Thought: Life issues like surprise pregnancy and terminal diagnosis cast long shadows. Sometimes our mortal eyes behold despair and death in such circumstances. But our Lord Jesus loves nothing more than lost causes (Ezekiel 37:5-6). He walks hope into the darkest valley, and where our resolve ends, His resurrection begins. Trusting His presence and promise and power takes hold of a life not even crisis or cancer can touch (John 11:25).
