Churches worldwide mark Reformation anniversary

On 31 October, Lutherans around the globe commemorate the anniversary of the Reformation. To mark the occasion this year, LWF’s Communion Office is providing new multi-lingual worship materials and other online resources to help churches pray and reflect together on the meaning of Reformation in our contemporary context. These include:

  • During the week leading up to 31 October, we will publish videos with reflections from all seven LWF regions on what it means to be Lutheran in different countries and cultures.
  • On 27 October, we explore how churches can engage better with media through a webinar highlighting the ongoing concern for literacy and education to combat fake news and misleading theologies.

On Reformation day, an anniversary edition of the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification (JDDJ) will be published, showcasing plans for future joint action among the five global communions that have endorsed this landmark ecumenical document.
