    We all hope for Lutherans, too. How would I feel as a Christian, forget Lutheran, looking up and seeing Dr. George Tiller, or the equivalent, in my congregation? Not to crow - we have enablers such as Sebelius, Biden, Pelosi et al. If they're murdering infants in the womb they certainly are accomplices!

    Pray for us Lutherans, too! There are many, many Lutheran brethren that would jump at a similar, most gracious, offer. Pax Vobiscum.

    I have read your column for years. I draw great strength from them. This one set chills not just up my spine, but everywhere - and let me be clear - they were the chills of a holy thrill. Wow. Stunning development. My father was a fan of the French (I think) theologian Pierre de Chardin (sp?) and his favorite discovery in reading him was the concept that 'all things will become one'. The Great Master Our Lord and Savior be praised in unity with our Creator our Father and His most magnificent and ever omnipresent Holy Spirit. May His Divine Mercy and Love be with all of us who are created in His image and likeness, always. Clement
