“Our Lutheran Life” invites and encourages ELCA members to tell contemporary stories inspired by the Reformation about how the power of God’s grace plays out in the complexities of daily life, relationships, work and school. Your story is welcome, whether it addresses complex questions, heals suffering or recounts times of joy.

These stories narrate how Lutherans move in today’s society as Christians connected to the world around them, seeking to live out their faith for the next 500 years and beyond.

Create and submit your story using best practice recommendations provided here. For an individual ELCA Release Form, click here.

As seminary student, Louise Buckles (Shelton, WA) experience with her husband’s cancer brought her to the ELCA and is where she eventually came to understand the role of God’s grace in the theology of the cross.

You can watch and/or listen to all stories at livinglutheran.org/reformation.
