Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,

Please mark your calendars for the next live webcast, “Ecumenical and Interreligious Witness on the Eve of the Reformation Anniversary,” on Thursday, Oct. 27, at 7 p.m. CDT. As Lutherans, we have 499 years of history, but on this day we will explore:

  •  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?
  •  What might ecumenical and interreligious relationships look like in the future, and what does this mean for our faith community?

Tune in to the live webcast on Oct. 27 by visiting, where a link to the recorded video will be made available after the broadcast. A live stream also will be available at If you would like to submit a question to be considered during the live webcast, please send it to and provide your name and your congregation’s name, city and state.

Check our website for future information concerning our participants and selected resources. We also invite you to participate and join the conversation by using #ELCAwebcast on social media. God’s peace,

The Rev. Elizabeth A. Eaton
Presiding Bishop
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
