This position will be split into a decision-making/voting role and a separate accountant will be hired if no person is found to occupy the whole position.

Non-voting Spiritual Advisors are Pr. Mark Meier, LCMS Pastor in Poy Sippi, and Pr. Steve Pockat, LCMS Pastor in Shawano.   Pr. Mark has been in the role for one year; Pr.

OTHER RESOURCES DEALING WITH LIFE-AFFIRMING ISSUES:

A Place of Refuge Maternity home/resale shop; P.O. Box 240695, Milwaukee, WI

Your local pregnancy center can assist with all pregnancy information/guidance regarding intended or unintended pre and/or post-pregnancy issues.

The WI Coalition Against Assisted Suicide can assist with all end of life issues.  Barbara@patientsrightsaction.org .  However, the WI Coalition doesn’t yet take funds, so funds can be sent to Lutherans for Life, 1101 5th St., Nevada, IA 50201-1816 c/o MN Coalition Against Assisted Suicide.

LFL’s Executive Director, Rev. Michael W. Salemink, has recently published “Going Gracefully,” which addresses issues regarding assisted suicide.  To access that Pulbication, see http://www.Lutheransforlife.org/articles/going-gracefully or http://www.lutheransforlife.org .

Concordia Publishing online offers LFL’s materials on just about any of the life-affirming issues.  Once on that site, go to the “Education” tab, then the “Sanctity of Life” Tab.  Upcoming additional literature there will include ministries to the barron, those who’ve incurred miscarriages, and ministry to traditional marriage/family life as well as single and divorced.

Heritage House ’76, WELs’ Christian Life Resources, and the Human Life Alliance offer many wonderful life-affirming resources, as well.  Check them out!
