Reclaiming 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.
The third Symposium in the Forgotten Luther series invites congregations to develop a broader understanding of the global dimension of Christ’s mission in the world. Against the growing disparity in wealth and the rising tide of economic and political refugees throughout the world, the Symposium will reflect on Luther’s oft-forgotten social and economic reforms that flow from his central doctrine of justification by grace through faith.
WHEN: October 25 – 26, 2019 at Saint Luke Lutheran Church, Silver Spring, Maryland.
