Global Commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation (LWF)

(LWI) A highlight of the Twelfth Assembly of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) will be the global Commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation where Assembly delegates from all over the world join members of the Lutheran churches in Namibia and ecumenical guests in commemorating the anniversary. The service will take place on Sunday, 14 May, at the Sam Nujoma Stadium, which can accommodate up to 10,000 people.

Bishop emeritus  Dr Zephania Kameeta, former LWF Vice-President for Africa, will preach on the Assembly theme, “Liberated by God’s Grace.” He previously served as bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in the Republic of Namibia (ELCRN) and is currently the  Minister of  Poverty Eradication and Social Welfare in Namibia.

“We have traveled from Wittenberg, where the LWF Council met in 2016, to Lund and Malmö in Sweden, where we jointly commemorated the Reformation anniversary with the Roman Catholic Church. Now we will be in Namibia, witnessing together that the Reformation is a global citizen,” says LWF General Secretary Rev. Dr Martin Junge.
