Partner Church Consultation of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northern Germany
“Walking together the Way of Justice”
12.-21. September 2015
We would like to invite all our partner churches for a consultation about common themes and concerns. The general background for this venture is the merger of our three churches here in Northern Germany – the Mecklenburg, Pomeranian and Northelbian Church – to become the Evangelical-Lutheran Church in Northern Germany.
This merger took place and was celebrated at Pentecost 2012 in Ratzeburg. Each of our former churches bring into our new church relations to partner churches in various parts of the world. We feel that now, as our new church has somewhat settled structurally, it is time to invite all our 32 partner churches to recognize one another afresh, reflect on our partnership relations, identify common concerns and celebrate on our common journey towards the kingdom of God.
