NRLC Welcomes the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty

By Carol Tobias, President

NRLC had the honor of hosting a reception Tuesday afternoon, welcoming to Washington the Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz, Executive Director of the new Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty. Dr. Seltz and I are shown with the Rev. Dr. Matthew Harrison, president of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod, and Tim Goeglein, VP of Government and External Relations for Focus on the Family.

National Right to Life had the honor of co-hosting, along with the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty (LCRL), a reception on Tuesday, February 13, to introduce pro-lifers and Christian advocates in Washington to the new Center and its Executive Director, the Rev. Dr. Greg Seltz.

The LCRL is an undertaking by the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod with a goal of celebrating, advocating, and protecting religious liberty for the sake of its mission and ministry. The Center will also add its strong voice to the political discourse on behalf of unborn children threatened by abortion and the elderly and those with disabilities who are vulnerable to assisted suicide and euthanasia.

Among the guests in attendance were representatives from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the National Association of Evangelicals, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, Association of Christian Schools International, American Association of Christian Schools, the Christian Medical Society, and March for Life.

We welcome Dr. Seltz to Washington and look forward to working with him to advance the culture of life in our nation’s capitol.
