In the 60 years since the founding of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF)at Lund, Sweden, it has grown from a federation to a world communion of churches. The interaction of a diversity of ecclesial traditions, cultural and language distinctions has formed a unique body of Lutheran unity.
In 2007, celebrating the 60 years, the leadership of the 140 member churches met in Lund to discuss self-understanding, experiences, expectations, and challenges.
This book includes reports from LWF officers and church leaders, greetings from representatives of other church families and global Christian organizations and from governmental representatives. In addition to the LWF foundational documents, the "Marriage, Family, and Human Sexuality;" Apostolicity of the Church; and "House of Europe" discussions are included.
