Our Mission


To engage the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada in a dynamic dialogue in which information, inspiration and ideas are shared in a thoughtful and stimulating way.

What You Need To Know


As much as is possible, the content of the magazine is chosen from the work of Canadian writers. The content strives to reflect the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada in the context of our Canadian society. It should be noted that "evangelical" in our denomination's title reflects our historic context and is not used in the sense that North Americans generally understand that word.

Canada Lutheran's readers are a diverse group of people who come from all parts of the globe, span the generations and have varying levels of education—a challenging audience for any writer.

Personal stories of faith, documentary articles and profiles of people of interest to our readers (normally ELCIC members) are regularly published. Articles of a seasonal nature or which provide advice in "how to" lists are most welcome. Material highlighting ministry in the synods are always of interest to our synod editors.

Material by writers from other countries and of other denominations is used occasionally, provided the material appropriately addresses our Canadian and our Lutheran context. Every article submitted is considered, and the editor tries to reply promptly.
