Württemberg Church to Welcome
20 – 27 July 2010 | Stuttgart, Germany
The Evangelical Lutheran Church in Württemberg, Germany, is gearing up to host the LWF Eleventh Assembly, 20-27 July 2010. Representatives from across the globe will gather in Stuttgart to worship, debate issues facing their churches, and give direction to the Lutheran communion’s life and work.
“Give Us Today Our Daily Bread”
The Assembly theme is “Give Us Today Our Daily Bread.”
This fourth petition of the Lord’s Prayer challenges the LWF and its assembly delegates to define prophetic responses to all injustice that threatens life in abundance: exclusion, poverty, lack of safe water, HIV and AIDS, neoliberal globalization, interreligious conflict, human rights violations…
The vivid green bud of the Assembly logo illustrates this universal need for nourishment - how the petition for “daily bread” is both simple and vital, a basic commitment to ensuring life in dignity for all.
The LWF Assembly meets every six to seven years. It is the highest governing body of the 140-member communion.
