Lutheran’s launch renewal newsletter

  • Written by  Living Grace
The 1st edition of the Lutheran Renewal newsletter was released this month

Toowoomba’s Living Grace Lutheran Church recently launched a national renewal movement among Lutherans and beyond in Australia and New Zealand with the hope of communicating stories of God’s power at work.

“The objective of the Lutheran Renewal newsletter is to create a platform for faith conversations which are usually suppressed in the current denominational climate,” said Rev Edgar Meyer, from Living Grace Lutheran Church. 

“For instance, the first edition of a national newsletter will feature testimonies from Pastor Dirk Willner, who had an experience of heaven in 2004, and Pastor Peter Steicke, whom God used to heal a blind man in 2007.”

“None of these testimonies were celebrated or debriefed in any official setting but Lutheran Renewal wants to change this,” said Rev. Edgar. 

The first national renewal conference will be held in Toowoomba this year between 20-22 November.

Rev. Edgar said there is a groundswell of people in the Lutheran church and beyond that are hungry for more of God and the heart of the renewal movement can be summed up in one word: relationship.

“The Christian faith is about more than correct rituals, theology and traditions,” he said. 

“It is about encountering God and living in a relationship with him where prayer is not a one-sided conversation but a rich experience of communing with him.”
