LWF General Secretary Praises Younan’s Commitment to Justice and Peace Building
Our Shared Witness: A Voice for Justice and Reconciliation is the title of a collection of writings, speeches, and sermons by Bishop Dr Munib A. Younan, President of The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and head of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land.
Launching the book on 19 June in the context of the LWF Council meeting at Bogotá, Colombia, LWF General Secretary Rev. Martin Junge praised Younan’s longstanding commitment to peace building, justice and reconciliation. He thanked those who had put together this collection, saying “a people without a memory are a people without a future.”
In the book’s foreward Junge notes that the publication reveals a theological context that is deeply rooted in Younan’s daily reality as a Palestinian Christian, while at the same time offering insights and principles that apply to other situations in vastly different parts of the world.
The LWF president signed copies of Our Shared Witness for LWF Council members.
Orders of the 236-page book can be placed with Lutheran University Press (publisher@LutheranUPress.org) at a cost of USD 20.00. It is edited by Fred Strickert.
