LWF General Secretary Burghardt at General Assembly of German Association of Protestant Churches and Missions
(LWI) - How do we, as Christians, understand our mission today? How to we respond to Christ’s great commission at the end of Matthew’s gospel to ‘go and make disciples of all nations?”
That question was at the heart of a greeting by the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) General Secretary Rev. Anne Burghardt to the Association of Protestant Churches and Missions in Germany (Evangelische Mission Weltweit, EMW) which is holding its annual General Assembly in Hamburg this week.
It is our task, she said, to pass on what our Lord Jesus Christ commanded us to do: to share with others the Good News of our liberation, to serve fellow human beings, to respect the dignity of other and to work for reconciliation.
