A bridge of fellowship across Asia

Posted by: LWF-Asia on Jan 14, 2006 – 02:37 PM | Read 1997 times

This year as members of the Japan Evangelical Lutheran Church (JELC) gather to worship the Prince of Peace and sing "O Little Town of Bethlehem" at Christmas time, they will do so with a new understanding of both peace and Bethlehem.

Although Japan and Bethlehem stand at opposite ends of the vast Asian continent, there is now a new bridge that connects the two. It is the bridge of fellowship under girded by faith, which has been made visible through the visit of the Rev Dr Mitri Raheb to Japan, pastor of Christmas Lutheran Church in Bethlehem.

Dr Raheb came to Japan at the invitation of JELC in August this year to share his ministry through lectures in Tokyo and Kyoto, and to preach at Hiroshima Lutheran Church … Read more

Protest against a Fashionable Bottle Water Rights Campaigns

Posted by: LWF-Asia on Feb 15, 2007 – 08:51 PM | Read 1281 times

It became fashionable for Linus Njoroge, a street boy at the 7th World Social Forum (WSF) in Nairobi, Kenya, to carry one bottle of water in his hip pocket and another in his hand.

He had gone to the Moi International Sports Center, Kasarani, to see "this big meeting" where thousands of people had converged to discuss the possibility of ‘another world’. But what he found out was that everyone there carried bottled water, unlike his, which he had filled in a nearby tap.

Njoroge’s case could be isolated, but the anger that marked the protests on water rights at the 20-25 January 2007 WSF tells of a new conflict, which might catch many governments unaware, according to some of the WSF participants.

LWF Sunday 2006

Posted by: LWF-Asia on Sep 12, 2006 – 11:01 AM | Read 1036 times

The global Lutheran communion comprises 140 member churches in 78 countries with a total membership of 66.2 million Christians. The size of the communion, together with the many different traditions and customs it embraces, is an impressive expression of Christian unity in our world. The annual Lutheran World Federation Sunday-held on or around Reformation Sunday-celebrates and gives thanks for this rich diversity.

The LWF Council adopted the idea of LWF Sunday in 1995 in hope that churches would celebrate such a day every year beginning in 1997 when the Federation commemorated its fiftieth anniversary. The themes chosen for each LWF Sunday until now can be found in the 1997 Hong Kong Assembly Study Book. But from 2001 focus is being given to particular aspects of LWF work to stress the scope … Read more
