A highlight of the Twelfth Assembly of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) will be the global Commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation where Assembly delegates from all over the world join members of the Lutheran churches in Namibia and ecumenical guests in commemorating the anniversary.
The theme of the Twelfth LWF Assembly – “Liberated by God’s Grace” – will be further explored in three so-called sub-themes that all focus on that which is “not for sale”. Rev. Anne Burghardt, Study Secretary for Ecumenical Relations, explains how the themes will be presented at the Assembly,
“Liberated by God’s Grace” is the main theme for the LWF's activities around the 500th anniversary of the Reformation in 2017. It will also be the theme of the 2017 Assembly of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) in Windhoek, Namibia.
