Bishop Gafkjen’s May Newsletter

For a week near the beginning of May, I have the honor and joy of representing the ELCA and the Indiana-Kentucky Synod as a voting member of the Twelfth Assembly of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF). At this Assembly the LWF will also commemorate the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in grand global fashion. The theme for this assembly is “Liberated by God’s Grace,” supported by three sub-themes: “Salvation—Not for Sale,” “Human Beings—Not for Sale,” and “Creation—Not for Sale.”
