The Rev. Dr. Gregory Seltz reminds us that, “while the resurrection freedom of Good Friday and Easter Sunday is the only enduring, eternal freedom in the world, it is a precious thing to have the temporal freedoms of America as well.” Happy Independence Day from the Lutheran Center for Religious Liberty (LCRL).
