Life Quote for Today: “Very sad—the Church denying women and men forgiveness and healing because talking about abortion might make someone feel bad. It’s more than sad. It’s a missed opportunity to apply the Gospel where forgiveness and healing is desperately needed!” Diane E. Schroeder, president of Lutherans For Life – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life –

Thank You! Dear members of Trinity Lutheran Church, Creston, Iowa. Thank you so very much for the opportunity to attend the International Academy of Apologetics, Evangelism and Human Rights this summer. It was a wonderful trip and formative in my understanding of Christian Evangelism and Apologetics. I will in the future share more specifically my experiences in France, including attending our sister congregation in Paris for Divine Service (in French!) and celebrating Holy Communion with them, our surprise weekend in Munich, Germany and the Concentration camp at Dachau. The trip was educational and very enjoyable. I thank you for your generosity. Pastor Watt.
