October 27, 2016 Ecumenical webcast


Thank you for joining Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton and guests on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 7-8 p.m. CDT for the "Ecumenical and Interreligious witness on the eve of the Reformation anniversary" live webcast. Watch a recording of the live broadcast here or visit our ELCA Facebook social media site (#ELCAwebcast).

Some items discussed were:

  • What was the Reformation, and what does it mean for Lutherans and ecumenical partners?
  • What is “Declaration on the Way,” and why is it significant for Lutheran-Catholic relations?
  • How might we understand our ecumenical and inter-religious relationships as part of our participation in the ongoing Reformation?

American Lutheran religious scholar, Martin Marty, Khadijah Islam, and Dr. Susan K. Wood, SCL, Ph.D. joined us for this discussion.

You were encouraged to view the webcast with your congregation, group or committee. Hopefully, this may help conversation as you plan for and discuss your observation of the Reformation in 2017. Find additional information on how ELCA synods and congregations are observing the Reformation here.
