Commemorating 500 Years of the Reformation
Bishop Martin Wells standing next to our synod's Common Medlar tree. While attending the recent Conference of Bishops Annual Meeting, the Bishop took part in the dedication ceremony at the Luthergarden.
"Even if I knew that the world were to collapse tomorrow, I would still plant my apple tree today" (attributed to Martin Luther).
In 2017, Lutheran churches around the world will commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation that had its beginnings in Lutherstadt Wittenberg. To commemorate this event, "Luthergarden" has been created in Wittenberg on the grounds of the former town fortifications. In connection with this project, 500 trees will be planted at different places in the city region, giving a concrete sign of the optimism so clearly expressed in Luther's apple tree quote. Congregations and synods from around the globe and from all confessions are asked to sponsor one of the 500 trees to be planted in Wittenberg. We are also asking them to plant a corresponding tree in a place that is significant in their own space.

A Child Dies from Malaria Every 60 Seconds.
Today we are in a special moment where we could turn this around. Working though Lutheran churches in Africa, the ELCA Malaria Campaign is uniquely positioned to provide mosquito nets, insecticides, medication, health care, education and more to help eliminate deaths from this disease—for good. To date, the Eastern Washington-Idaho Synod has given $20,984.25 to this cause. For more information, visit the ELCA Malaria Campaign.
