Global Perspectives on the Reformation launches the three-year Reformation anniversary core period. It offers a forum for global discernment on the impact of the Reformation on church and society, and will be a platform for discussing the interaction between theological thinking, economics and politics in the twenty-first century. We discuss the role of theology in addressing crucial questions related to political and economic realities in different contexts today.
Some 70 participants will be invited, with extra space for self-funded participants. LWF General Secretary Martin Junge will give an opening presentation on the first evening, followed by three conference days and an excursion in Windhoek. The conference days will be made up of plenary sessions with contextual Bible studies, keynote speeches, panel discussions, workshops and group discussions.
The LWF is one of the partners of the Association of Protestant Churches and Missions in Germany, EMW, in the project Reformation – Education – Transformation.
