The Forgotten Luther

“Forgotten Luther” Symposium: Re-Claiming a Vision of Global Community
We are facing a global crisis - ecological, political, and economic. A Spirit-led response from churches in the Global South reminds us of Martin Luther’s oft-neglected conviction that God’s gift of grace in Jesus has far-reaching implications, not just for individual lives but for the ways we live together on this earth. A new heaven and earth break in for us as we reclaim a vision of global community.
October 25 - 26, 2019 - Saint Luke Lutheran Church, Silver Spring, Maryland. For more information visit: WWW.FLIII.US
Sponsored by: Global Mission, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America; ELCA World Hunger; ELCA Metro D.C. Synod; and Saint Luke Lutheran Church, Silver Spring, MD.
