Lutherans for Life – Life-Thought: Jesus’ bodily resurrection (Matthew 28:9) reveals as much about us as it does about God. What great majesty and honor the Almighty Maker hides (Colossians 3:3) in human flesh! And if He places such worth in a body broken by crucifixion, if He works such purpose in the rotting confines of a tomb, how much more can – will He! – do so in surprise pregnancy and in terminal diagnosis!
In Case of Emergency or Hospitalization: Please notify Pastor Frahm at the above cell number or one of the elders: Ralph Hewett at 715-385-2616, Greg Sass at 715-385-0337, or Steven Lorbiecki at 715-686-7946.
