Report of the Special Committee “Luther 2017: 500 Years of Reformation”

The report of the Special Committee “Luther 2017: 500 Years of Reformation” submitted to the LWF Council in June 2013 provides a framework for anniversary commemorations and program planning.

In addition to outlining the principles and goals of the LWF’s Reformation 2017 commemorations, the report introduces the overall theme for the anniversary - Liberated by God’s Grace - and the three sub-themes for the period 2015–2017:

  • Salvation—not for sale
  • Human beings—not for sale
  • Creation—not for sale

It makes recommendations for the actual anniversary celebrations, including the LWF Twelfth Assembly and Reformation Day 2017 (LWF Sunday 2017).
