Lutheran World Federation Theological Education and formation (TEF): An Historical Overview and a Look Ahead
The purpose of this document is to gather and preserve the memory of the LWF’s work in theological education, so that our history can inform the future of our work. That is the spirit in which this document is offered. It is our hope that this shared history will inspire us to continue to develop new methods and modalities of educating our members, so that they will be transformed, and in turn be equipped to transform the world through contextual, creative, critical and concrete theological reflection on the Holy Trinity’s creative, liberating and reconciling Word.
