September 1 Life Quote “Christianity is not a power of fear that binds the hearts of men, but a power that breaks the bonds of fear and sets the believers free. The incarnate Christ, the ‘Word become flesh,’ has come down to earth to mediate between God and man through His death on the cross. Where this message is proclaimed, hearts are set free.” Pastor Martin Horn, chairman of the AFLC Schools Board of Trustees, serves Emmanuel Lutheran and Hauge Lutheran in Kenyon, Minnesota – A “Life Quote” from Lutherans For Life ·
