It gives me great pleasure to present Asia Lutheran News (ALN 60) to you which focuses on the need for Reformation in 21st century in Asian member churches. God has called the Asian Lutheran Communion to minister to her people. As the Lutheran World is marching towards 500th anniversary of Reformation this issue challenges the Lutheran communion in Asia to re-examine her ministry, teachings and theology and reform our Lutheran traditions to Trans-form our communities to have a better communion.
