Laudato Si & the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation

Last year, Pope Francis issued an encyclical, Laudato Si (Praised Be), about care for creation. The CTK Creation Care Team invites you to join in a Lutheran Study on Laudato Si which emphasizes the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. For the observance of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, the Lutheran World Federation has put forward three themes: Salvation – Not for Sale, Human Beings- Not for Sale & Creation – Not for Sale. The Lutheran Study on Laudato Si examines the encyclical from a Reformation perspective and serves not only as a study on care for creation, but also as preparation for the celebration of the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation. The Lutheran Study on Laudato Si will take place on Wednesday evenings through April 27 at 6:00 p.m. The study materials are available as a free download from Join in this class to learn more about care for creation, and what that means for the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation.
