Introducing the Thirteenth Assembly and its Theme 

The publication introduces the Thirteenth Assembly of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF), and its theme, “One Body, One Spirit, One Hope.”    

It is an invitation to LWF’s member churches to start engaging with the theme, as the communion prepares for the next meeting of its highest decision-making body, 13-19 September 2023 in Krakow, Poland. The Evangelical Church of the Augsburg Confession in Poland will host the assembly.
