March for Life

Went to the March for Life yesterday. It was a good year this year. I think the 40th anniversary of Roe v. Wade brought more people out. Also had more than the usual number of Lutherans due to the Life Conference taking place today. I was talking to one of the speakers who said they are going to do a conference like this every year in conjunction with the March - I hope so! It will be good to get more Lutherans here every year to participate. Sadly, though, we weren't really organized and got split up during the March and so didn't stay together as a group.

Got to catch up with some friends as we walked, which was nice. It was cold and snowed a lot of the way - but I was bundled up well and the snow really made it pleasant. But the March is always pleasant! The people who March are always upbeat and positive - there's rarely anything untoward. Maybe because we're marching in love for something instead of angrily against something. I don't have a picture of our group, so the generic picture above will have to do. We didn't get a good group picture at the end of the March like usual - I think because there were more of us than usual, we got split up, and it was still very crowded around the Supreme Court when we arrived. But a good day, all in all.

UPDATE: Here are some pictures of the Lutherans in the March. Like the nice neon green hats? :-)

Lord God, bring an end to the horror of abortion in our day, that all people you create be loved and welcomed into the world as a gift from you. Amen.
