“Freely you have received, freely give.”  (Matthew 10:8, NIV)

This verse from Matthew has been chosen as the Council meeting 2018 theme. This passage invites us to not only recognize the freely given Grace of God but also to commit and walk the path of gifting.

 

The Lutheran World Federation's annual governance meeting takes place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 28 June to 2 July 2018. On 27 June the LWF Executive Committee will meet and a Pre-Council meeting for women and youth will take place.

The LWF Council meets once a year and is responsible for LWF business between Assemblies. It consists of:

  • the President
  • the Chairperson of the Finance Committee
  • 48 lay or ordained people, from LWF member churches in seven regions.

Members of this Council were appointed at the 2017 Twelfth Assembly.
