Previously, we’ve done a deep dive into the theology of the body and how the Christian should view their physical bodies in light of how God views the body. In this latest episode, we sit down to talk with Pastor Todd Liefer, who discusses how our theology of the body impacts our care for the body. Todd gives listeners very practical tips on everything from overall health and wellness to the importance of physical activity, nutrition, rest, and mental and spiritual health. Todd also discusses how care for the body bleeds into the realms of discipleship, stewardship, and love for neighbor.
Bio: Pastor Todd Liefer has a life-long passion for sharing the Word of God in fresh, creative ways. Over the last decade he has served ministries in Austin, TX and St. Louis, MO. He currently serves as the Associate Pastor of Adult Discipleship at Hales Corners Lutheran, Hales Corners, WI. You’ll often see him and his family on all kinds of outdoor adventures throughout the Milwaukee area!

We believe that God is the author and sustainer of all life. We also know it can be hard to speak about the intrinsic value of that life when it feels like the world is trying to drown us out.
We’re right here beside you. In this podcast of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s Life Ministry, we’re coming alongside one another as a community of Christ’s redeemed people, ones who are speaking up for and living out the sanctity of human life. Together we’ll explore life issues in a way that honors our heavenly Father’s value of human life, serves our neighbor, and connects us to others who are doing the same. Join us, so that together we can be friends for life.
