Looking to the biblical account of the encounter between Jesus and the disciples on the road to Emmaus, LWF member churches embrace mutual accompaniment as the model for communion relationships.
We walk together in God’s mission in solidarity, interdependence and mutual responsibility.
We share and reflect on our journey as a communion of churches, on theological questions in view of current challenges and on further communion-wide and bilateral dialogue and discernment processes.
“As a communion we will find ways better to discuss the issues that potentially divide us – issues such as human sexuality and different interpretation of the Scriptures – in ways that honor both diversity of views on important issues and the more fundamental basis of unity among us.
We will first of all rely on the power of Eucharistic worship and prayer.”
