Life Quote: “It may appear that the culture has lost its moral footing. We may fear the pagan culture is ready to absorb us. We may feel paralyzed and powerless to engage. But while God is doing His work, there is something we can do too. We can live. We can live as men and women eager to glorify God while He transforms the culture.” Linda D. Bartlett, www.titus2-4life.org – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life – www.lutheransforlife.org
