Working with passion for the church and the world

(LWI) - The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) has published “From Windhoek to Kraków,” a report on the journey from the Twelfth to the Thirteenth Assembly. This six-year report gives an overview of the LWF’s activities from 2017-2023.

“As you prepare for the Thirteenth Assembly, this report will give insights into that work, showing how we strengthened communion relations, worked for unity, engaged in theology together, spoke out for justice, empowered churches, built the leadership skills of women, and youth, and of lay and ordained people, with passion for the church, and how we worked to support people in need,” the LWF’s General Secretary, Rev. Dr. Anne Burghardt, writes in the introduction to the report.

Following the outline of the LWF Strategy 2019-2024 – With Passion for the Church and for the World, the report describes the communion’s journey along the overall framework of its two strategic priorities: “Supporting churches’ presence and vibrant witness in the world” and “Promoting human dignity, justice and peace”.
