Does the number “3-04” mean anything to you? It’s about to.

The 2016 LCMS convention adopted Resolution 3-04 “To Create Task Force for Study of Issues Relating to Procreation, Fertility, and Care for Unborn,” and the new task force met in December 2017 to begin to address these issues.

The spring 2018 LCMS Life Ministry newsletter — now named News and Notes — reviews the task force’s discussions on establishing “foundational matters” relative to these moral questions and assumptions.

The newsletter also includes the following stories:

  • Why LCMS deaconess student Kaitlin Jandereski traveled from Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind., to attend the March for Life in Washington, D.C.
  • Bethesda Lutheran Communities introduces new pamphlet “Welcoming A Child with Disabilities intro Your Family.”
  • Disability Ministry offers resources to help congregations welcome all to worship – regardless of physical, mental or developmental ability.
