On March 21, 2017, World Down Syndrome Day, we at Lutherans For Life shared that while some global government officials boast of abortion rates approaching 100% for Down syndrome pregnancies, Lutherans For Life celebrates each unique human being as a precious blessing created, redeemed, and called by our Lord. We recognize, receive, and respect them and their families as our brothers and sisters, and we enthusiastically commit to sharing with them the sorrows and joys that accompany every life. We thank our Heavenly Father for enriching our lives through the individuals we remember on World Down Syndrome Day.
“Jesus Loves Me and those with Down syndrome” shares two stories from LFL team members—along with an award-winning essay—that highlight the value of these precious brothers and sisters.
LifeMarks is a set of seven bookmarks designed to directly apply the Bible’s teachings on life as found in Luther’s Small Catechism—and fit right into the catechism itself! This is a wonderful resource for confirmation, congregational, Sunday school, and home use! All seven come on a single sheet, perforated for easy separation.

We are offering, through Concordia Publishing House, this resource produced by Tiny Hands Ministries, Inc. of Concord, North Carolina.
“’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.”
The book and booklet should be at CPH late this week. (updated 10/30/17)
A new brochure by Rev. Salemink is now available to order through Concordia Publishing House:
In “Going Gracefully,” Rev. Michael W. Salemink presents a better end-of-life approach than assisted suicide. Rev. Salemink looks at the issues of autonomy, pain, quality of life, and death with dignity (“What it is,” “Why it’s bad,” and “What is better”). Also included are “Eight Things You Should Know About Assisted Suicide” and “Sixteen Things You Can Do About Assisted Suicide.”
“Life with grace delivers even more blessing than ‘death with dignity.’ Death has no dignity to lend to anybody, but a dignified person can adorn even death with nobility (Acts 7:59-60).”
The brochure should be available for shipping very soon—hopefully later next week.
