How can we best comfort and support couples suffering from infertility? Is adoption a viable option for every barren couple? What is the Church to think, say and do about reproductive technologies like in vitro fertilization and embryo adoption?

These questions are at the heart of LCMS Life Ministry’s second Infertility Ethics Symposium, set for Saturday, Nov. 7 at Concordia Theological Seminary, Fort Wayne, Ind. This free, one-day event is open to pastors and laypeople.

“Life is a gift, and children are a blessing,” says the Rev. Dr. Peter J. Scaer, associate professor of Exegetical Theology at Concordia Theological Seminary. “But our Lord has a heart for the barren. He understands the struggles and sadness of the childless. This symposium is a wonderful opportunity to think deeply about the things that matter in a way that is both God-pleasing and affirms life through all its ups and downs.”

Join us as we continue the conversation about these topics, led by the following prestigious presenters:

Dr. Donna Harrison, president of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists;

Rev. Scott Stiegemeyer, assistant professor of Theology and Bioethics at Concordia University, Irvine, Calif.;

Rev. Michael W. Salemink, executive director-elect of Lutherans For Life; and

Katie Schuermann, author and speaker.
