“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well,” Psalm 139:13-14.
This past week I went along to Washington, D.C., for the March for Life trip that the Pro-Life group at CLHS takes each year.
The overnight bus ride on the way there and back is a little rough, but totally worth it for the experiences we have while there!
The first two years I taught at Concordia I did not go to DC for this event. It was my daughter who inspired me to go three years ago, and it was nothing like I thought it would be.
The best way I can describe it is hundreds of thousands of people with a peaceful and heartfelt desire for all life to be valued. That is why I continue to go.
I love that we have students here at Concordia who are so passionate about the value of life. I am so thankful that they have learned — both at home and at school — that we are all important, all unique, and all made in the image of God. I’m inspired by the fact that that they are willing to take a stand, even when it may be uncomfortable, for something so important. They are there to be a voice for those who aren’t always able to speak for themselves.
Thank you, Concordia, for giving us the opportunity to protect the lives — ALL lives — that God has so lovingly knit together.
