ELC AC has presented the program of celebrating of the 500th anniversary of Reformation

Dear friends!

The church of the Russian Lutherans - ELC АC, has begun preparation for carrying out of a series of anniversary actions and programs in Russia and the European countries.

On the past on February, 11th, 2015 session of the Consistory we have accepted the concept in which our vision of logic, the maintenance and senses of this anniversary (the text is formulated below).

We recognize that our problem - to staticize a heritage of Reformation, including through representation to the society the contribution which the Russian Lutherans have brought in development of our country, its sciences, culture, art, military science, navigation and public administration. We think it is important give an acquaintance of wide audience with the literature, painting products, customs and traditions of inhabitants of that epoch, when Reformation has begun its way in Europe.

We plan to finish work on a complex of actions by December, 2016. Besides since April, 2016 a realization of our program will start, which will be opened by anniversary celebrations and the projects devoted 250th anniversary the Voronezh Lutheran communities in Russia.

At March session of the Consistory we will consider structure of our actions, their distribution of authority on regions. At conference of ELC АC in April of this year (about April, 17-19th, 2015) specific projects will be discussed: their semantic filling, participants, partners, forms of project’s parts.

We hope that the publishing project will be as a part of our projects, which help us to publish in Russian some works of seminary theologians of the Reformation, modern authors.

By decision of our Church, great honours confer to me - to become the chairman of Organizing committee on celebrating 500th anniversary of the Reformation. I warmly thank my brothers and sisters, ministers and employees of God's vineyard for such high trust, and I will try to justify it moderately by my modest forces and possibilities.

In the near future on a Church site of the Russian Lutherans the special section will be created, devoted this work in which we besides official documents will place a selection of materials (lectures, articles, performances) on a theme of European Reformation. We will be grateful to all for the help, support, councils, consultations on all questions of preparation and realization of our anniversary actions.
