LWF Christmas Message 2016

(LWI) – The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) celebrates Christmas in 2016 by thanking God for the reassurance that what unites Christians is more powerful than what divides them.

In this year’s Christmas message, LWF President Bishop Dr Munib A. Younan reflects on the Joint Catholic-Lutheran Commemoration of the Reformation in Lund in October, which also marked nearly 50 years of continued dialogue. He says the historic event offered opportunity for both ecumenical partners to mutually see and affirm a Gospel-centered faithfulness that is “carrying us from conflict to communion.”
