Liberated by God's Grace: Salvation - Not for Sale
The theme for the 2017 ELCIC Praise Appeal, Liberated by God's Grace: Salvation - Not for Sale, echoes The Lutheran World Federation theme for the commemoration of the 500th Anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation. You will see the ELCIC lift up this theme of Liberated by God's Grace and it's three subthemes (Creation - Not for Sale, Salvation - Not for Sale, and Human Beings - Not for Sale) as we participate in the international and ecumenical commemoration of the anniversary. The commemoration gives us the opportunity to remember and reflect on the Reformation and what it means for us now, living as Lutheran people within the whole body of Christ.
Congregations throughout the ELCIC are asked to designate one Sunday in 2017 to highlight this appeal at a time that works best for your local circumstances.
