"To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life." Revelation 21:6
What a beautiful word to guide us through the year ahead. “Water without cost” reminds us of the “not for sale” themes, which guided and inspired The Lutheran World Federation (LWF) as it commemorated locally and globally the 500th anniversary of the reformation. It is a phrase that affirms our basic conviction that God’s liberating grace which we breathe in as a gift, is breathed out as compassionate witness to the transforming presence of God in our broken and wounded world. This is how faith teaches the people of God to breathe. And this is how the church lives in the world: receiving and sharing God’s gifts.
