Wilson discussed with them their journey toward Lutheran theology and liturgy, the gifts of Pentecostal spirituality that they wanted to preserve, and how to address the post-Christian context in Sweden. Altogether it was a very fruitful trip and heartening to see the devotion to the gospel that continues to bear its witness in the Nordic countries.
It is also clear how greatly Charismatic renewal and Lutheran theology can support and foster one another for the good of the whole church.

Special thanks are due to Prof. Tomas Nygren, who teaches theology at the Johannelund School of Theology and has done much to communicate the theology of Luther to both church and society in Sweden. Audio recordings of some of Prof. On September 7—13, , the LWF-Pentecostal dialogue met for the fourth time during its five-year cycle of conversations, which are built on the proto-dialogue pioneered by the Institute in Strasbourg. The Malagasy Lutheran Church has a unique and highly developed healing ministry that came about through four revivals Fifohazana over the course of the last years, each of which is still alive and well!
We heard papers from professors and synodical leaders of the MLC, Rev. Joseph Randrianasolo and Rev. Noel Rabemanatsoa, on two of the four revivals: the Soantanana revival and the Ankaramalaza revival. Remarkably, two of these revivals were headed by women, of which the MLC is very proud. Overall, the MLC has perhaps the most extensive lay ministry of any Lutheran church in the world. The papers from Lutheran speakers were well complemented by one from Rev.
Opoku Onyinah, theologian and former head of the Church of Pentecost based in Ghana which has congregations and ministries in over countries. He discussed Pentecostal understandings of freedom, healing, and deliverance, with special attention both to biblical foundations and the difficult but crucial work of discernment. Ecumenists often observe in a dialogue the growth over time in understanding and trust. This is certainly the case with the LWF-Pentecostal dialogue. While there was strong good will and openness already at our first meeting in Baguio, Philippines, in , we have by now spent enough time getting to know each other and our respective traditions that this year we were able to have especially lively and penetrating discussions.
In addition to intensive discussion, the dialogue group enjoyed many great opportunities for worship and fellowship. In addition to twice-daily devotions led by dialogue members, we joined the annual meeting of the Antananarivo Synod held for five hours on a Sunday morning in an outdoor amphitheater, attended by over people, all of whom received holy communion!
We were hosted with ecumenical guests at a festive dinner by the church, the highlight of which was the powerful and impassioned singing by the university youth choir of one of the local Lutheran churches. We also attended a service at the toby revival camp started in Antananarivo by Germaine Volahavana, better known as Nenilava — , which gave space for the mentally and physically ill and addicted to pray publicly, give testimony, and read out Scripture, followed by a service of exorcism and laying-on of hands for healing. Another interesting detail of the dialogue was that we were in Madagascar at the same time as Pope Francis.
While he met with the local churches, we ourselves did not have a chance to have an audience with him; however, everywhere we went we saw signs of welcome for the Holy Father, adding an extra dimension of interconfessional richness to our gathering! In the LWF-Pentecostal will meet in North America for its fifth round to prepare its final report for public release.
Our short time together already has been so fruitful that we hope and pray our churches will support a new round of dialogue after this one reaches completion. In the Institute library we had the pleasure of welcoming the Castell deanery of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bavaria. After a coffee reception, the director of the Institute, Prof. Jennifer Wasmuth, gave an overview of the history and work of the Institute. Stefan Dienstbeck then presented the current projects of the Institute and gave an overview of the ecumenical situation at present.
Following a number of very interesting questions, suggestions, and discussions, as well as the pleasure of getting to know each other, we regarded the day as a positive stimulus for our work at the Institute. On this occasion, Prof. Jennifer Wasmuth and Prof. Stefan Dienstbeck accompanied the conference until Sunday June 16 as guests.

In particular, the new organizational structure of the Lutheran World Federation and the location of ecumenism directly under the Secretary General was of great importance from an institutional perspective. Apart from being able to present the initiatives and work of the Institute, the personal conversations and suggestions as well as the social interaction on the sidelines of the official events were motivation for further work at the Institute as well as a personal delight. The Institute in Strasbourg is encouraged to continue accompanying and shaping the path of the LWF in ecumenism.
The Institute was pleased to welcome the pastoral convention from the nearby town of Lahr on June 4, with coffee and cake. On the program was a presentation of the Institute by the director, Prof. Jennifer Wasmuth, an overview of current ecumenical challenges by Prof. Stefan Dienstbeck, and a lecture on cross-border cooperation and the ecumenical situation in France by Prof.
In addition to stimulating discussions and interesting suggestions we especially enjoyed the personal discussions. We look forward to our next meeting! On 21—22 May , the constituting meeting of the newly assembled Ecumenical Advisory Board took place in Vienna. The Institute is represented in the Commission; Prof.
Stefan Dienstbeck both attended the meeting. The first working steps were agreed upon and new contacts were made. Topics included the 50th anniversary of the Leuenberg Agreement in and current ecumenical challenges.
The Advisory Board will meet again in Berlin next year. It does not apply when ecumenical dialogues have overcome the divisive nature of differences and have been received by the churches, as in the case of the Leuenberg Agreement between Lutheran, Reformed, and United churches in Europe.
In Pursuit Of Religious Freedom: Bishop Martin Stephan's Journey
The thesis, on the other hand, does apply in the case of the rejection of Eucharistic hospitality between the Roman Catholic church and Protestant churches. Here many theologians and church leaders see divisive differences in teaching and practice. The churches have lost much in importance in their existence as institutions for a large number of people; that also applies to their doctrines, which find little resonance.

In contrast, many forms of spirituality have become attractive. So it pays to ask if and how certain forms of spirituality connect people from different churches or, under certain circumstances, create new divisions. She then distinguished between different forms of God-seeking. Bishop Dr. Karin Johannesson Uppsala, Sweden addressed a specific kind of the Lutheran tradition, which is historically reserved toward or even opposed to matters of piety and spirituality. Indeed, certain motifs of Luther and the Carmelites have mutual resonance, and Bishop Johannesson indicated what significance such an encounter could have in postmodern Sweden.
Many churches in Africa share this spirituality without understanding or calling themselves Pentecostal. Therein lies the unifying power of this spirituality. It is an interesting combination of two very different forms of spirituality: the disciplined form of the spiritual exercises of Ignatius Loyola and the more spontaneous, impulsive piety of the Charismatics. Another example of connected spiritualities was put forward by Sister Dr. This Protestant order has a Franciscan character and is now in a certain form of communion with the Franciscan monasteries.
She explained how this friendship creatively has shaped the history and profile of her Order. The creative activity of violinmaking becomes a prayer for him. In the second part of his talk, Schleske took the triad of which Paul speaks in Romans Word—Work—Miracle as his point of departure. According to this triad, faith should become the instrument of grace, so that grace in the world can work, so that the unholy may become holy and the sick may become healed. It is a path not of knowledge but of discovering, risking something with readiness, willingness to be disappointed and to learn from this.
It is a spirituality that takes that word of Jesus seriously.
