Liberated by God’s Grace
A series of Advent devotions prepared by the leaders of Anglican and Lutheran churches in full communion
The 2016 Advent season follows the inauguration of the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. Underscoring their ministry of reconciliation through the full communion partnership between Anglicans and Lutherans, Primate Fred Hiltz of the Anglican Church of Canada, National Bishop Susan Johnson of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry of the Episcopal Church, and Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America have prepared a series of devotions for Advent that may be used as bulletin inserts.
The devotions are framed around the Lutheran World Federation’s 500th anniversary themes and sub-themes: that we are “liberated by God’s grace” and that “salvation, human beings, and creation are not for sale.”
