Are you affiliated with the German government?
No. We acknowledge that the German government, in concert with the German Lutheran Church, is planning festivities to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. We affirm and pray for God’s blessing on these planned celebrations, recognizing they will be primarily historical in focus. Our work is distinct because it is an international grass-roots initiative emphasizing prayer, repentance, reconciliation and unity. We believe the commemorations and efforts ofWittenberg 2017 hold the potential of sending ripples of hope and unity through the Body of Christ. We have been delighted to hear that the official German Lutheran commemorations may incorporate some elements of grieving, repentance, healing, and work towards unity.
