The Lutheran Laymen’s League Canada has released the first of three videos that were made for the 500 Anniversary of the Reformation. They deal with the three solas: Grace alone, Faith alone, and Scripture alone. Lutheran Hour Ministries – Canada is now sharing its “Solas Alive”.
“The Box – Sola Gratia * Grace Alone”, “The Fight – Sola Fide * Faith Alone” and “Assembly Required – Sola Scripture * Scripture Alone” videos are now available for viewing. These short, engaging, videos have been created so that you and your friends can use your own social media connections to invite those outside the Christian church to find out more about God and His plan of salvation for all. Solas Alive is being shared on: Lutheran Hour Ministries Canada and Lutheran Laymens League Canada; our YouTube channel Lutheran Laymen’s League of Canada; and the internet at www.SolasAlive.com . Please help to give others the opportunity to learn of God’s message of Grace Alone, by Faith Alone, as revealed to us in Scripture Alone. Here are some ways to participate in this outreach:
- Like and Share the Facebook postings www.facebook.com/LutheranHourMinistriesCanada
- Use email, twitter, and other social media as well as word of mouth to promote the Solas Alive videos
- Put a link to www.SolasAlive.com on your personal website. When you like and share the videos on Facebook you increase the chances that others will find these videos. For more information go to www.LLL.ca and click on “RESOURCES” and then select “Solas Alive”.
