  5. Today is the 48th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion in the United States.  As Christian leaders, we want to be a voice "FOR LIFE!"  The proceeds from today’s Chick-fil-A lunch are helping support Lutherans for Life.  Lutherans For Life applies the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to sanctity-of-life issues, making Jesus known as the Son of God and Savior of all who can help and make a difference in people’s lives.  What is the primary message we want to share?  We want to share the Good News of what God has done which gives value and dignity to ALL human life!

It is Inauguration Day.  From the sounds of ceremonial artillery and church bells ringing across New York City in President Washington’s first inauguration, to President Jefferson’s ride on horseback from the Capitol to the President's House, inaugural festivities have reflected not only the president they honor, but also the desire of Americans to celebrate our nation's rich history and the peaceful transfer of presidential power. (Excerpts taken from “The White House Historical Association”)  Lutheran High School will be showing today’s Presidential Inauguration in the Learning Commons, as well as in some classrooms.  This will not be viewed as a political statement, debate, or discussion, but to simply witness a historical event in the United States.  On this day, we pray for our country; we pray for those assuming new roles in our governmental leadership, as well as those transitioning to a new phase in their lives.
