Title: “Invisible to Indispensable”
Overview: God doesn’t make spare parts. He has a vocation for ALL people regardless of their age, stage, ability, or life experience. Let’s look together at how indispensable everyone is, including those who may be “invisible” within our church and society at large.
Heather Ruesch, Life issues educator & author
Title: “My Body, My Life, My Value in Christ: A Discussion on Life and Sexuality”
Overview: We are in a battle! If you are a parent, a grandparent, pastor, youth leader, or teacher, you are well aware of the battle being waged against this generation. Let us arm ourselves with knowledge, train ourselves with good teaching, gird our loins with truth, and take up our swords and FIGHT. Fight to change the skin-deep culture surrounding our youth and replace it with the deep, deep love and protection of Jesus Christ. “It’s just sex.” “It’s just a choice.” “It’s just a piece of paper.” These are the lies destroying our families from the inside out. In this session, Heather Ruesch uncovers the lies of Satan and exposes the ways in which he attacks the things on which God has placed the most value on in our earthly lives: human life itself, sexuality, marriage, and family. The value God places on human life is the most important issue on the table; everything else radiates out from and comes back to that foundational truth. Satan knows it and God knows it, too.
Rev. Chris Brademeyer, President of LFL North Dakota Federation, Pastor of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Oakes, North Dakota
Title: “Wisdom: Supporting Life in the Face of Death”
Overview: Supporting life is sometimes more difficult than we would like. As life-affirming people, we are sometimes made uncomfortable by circumstances beyond our control as we know we need to take up the defense of life. What do we do when standing for life gets difficult…when it gets personal? When death and tragedy stare us down, how do we remain faithful? Learn how standing for life hits home when death, suffering, and hardship seek to hold us back from making a good confession of the sanctity of all lives.
Col. John Eidsmoe, member of the LFL Board of Directors, AFLC Pastor, law professor & retired Air Force Lt. Colonel
Title: “Looking at Abortion through Luther’s ‘Two Kingdoms’ Lenses”
Overview: Does “Two Kingdoms” theology mean separation of church and state? Topics will include: How do we use the Bible to form our view of the sanctity of life? How do we use the Bible to defend the sanctity of life in the public arena? Do the Bible and medical science conflict? How to we defend our pro-life convictions in court? Will the Supreme Court ever overrule Roe v. Wade? If it does, what then?
