May 19 “So, how do we as a church reclaim holding out for marriage? … We pray. We repent. We spend lots of time in God’s Word. We receive the Sacrament regularly. We talk about it. We talk about it with our kids when they’re young. We don’t fall prey to the ‘Well, they’re going to have sex anyway, so I may at least tell them how to be protected.’ No. We tell our young women about their worth and their value. We tell our young men what it means to be a man. We lift up the values of waiting. And we wait with them.” Adriane Dorr, editor of “The Lutheran Witness” – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life ·
