Reformation 500 Commemoration in Windhoek

Reformation 2017

Live on Reformation Day

On Reformation Day, 31st October 2017, the Lutheran World Federation invited everyone on a trip around the world and across the seven LWF regions to witness how the Reformation had become a global citizen.
Watch some of the worship services marking the 500th anniversary of the Reformation and listen to church leaders talking about the importance of these events in their regions.

Reflect. Connect. Be Transformed.

As a communion, we are journeying towards the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation in 2017.

Liberated by God’s Grace.

As Christians liberated by God’s grace, we are free. Free to love and serve our neighbor, free to be a responsible citizen in the world and free to be a good steward of God’s creation.

Salvation – Not for Sale

Salvation is God’s free gift— this is the central message of the doctrine of justification. It expresses a clear critique of concepts that treat salvation as a commodity on the “religious market.”

Human beings – Not for Sale

Every person is created in the image of God and must be fully respected in her/his dignity and integrity. Practices that create or increase poverty need to be critically addressed by churches.

Creation – Not for Sale

Nature has to be fully respected and protected as God’s good creation, entrusted to human care. It cannot be subject to exploitative human domination nor can its resources be exploited as commodities.

Reflect. Connect. Act.

Young people in the LWF are agents of ongoing r(R)eformation.
