Welcome to LivingLutheran.com
Martin Luther said, “Our faith is a living, busy, mighty, active thing.” At LivingLutheran.com, we invite you to share in the sense of purpose that our faith brings to our lives.
As an online publication of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), our goal is to provide a place for members and friends alike to find lively engagement in faith and life.
Here you’ll find the voices of ELCA members, as well as what’s happening in our church both across the country and around the world. We have resources for congregations, ideas to inspire and places to share what’s on your mind.
Who is the ELCA?
The ELCA is the church that shares a living, daring confidence in God’s grace. For us this faith comes through the good news of Jesus Christ and gives us the freedom and the courage to wonder, discover and boldly participate in what God is up to in the world. Liberated by our faith, we embrace you as a whole person — complexities and all.
Who are Lutherans?
The ELCA traces its roots directly to the teachings of Martin Luther, a 16th-century German monk, whose writings and teachings spearheaded the Protestant Reformation.
LivingLutheran.com offers a platform for ELCA members to share their diverse experiences of what it means to live Lutheran.
