The IX Festival of the Protestant Culture ”# Love # JOY # Peace”

The ninth edition of the Protestant Culture Festival was held in May 2019. The theme of the events focused on JOY. This topic turned out to be extremely current, which was demonstrated by the active participation of numerous guests in festival events and considerable media interest.

The rich program of the festival was the result of cooperation of Wroclaw churches, institutions and organizations that prepared over a dozen extremely diverse events and gatherings. Activities included: a scientific conference, debates and panels, concerts, exhibitions, lectures, trips and family events. Due to the wide festival offerings everyone could choose events that they were interested in – from entertainment, through cultural and religious events to exchanging views in the world of science.

We do not want cold faces and indifferent looks; we are not satisfied with cheerful jokes and shallow jokes. We have enough personal pessimism and social complaining. We are tired of life’s tiredness – mediocrity and boredom. The heart is looking for real, deep, continuous joy (…) Christian joy is not reduced to immediate feelings, but it is something that allows you to look joyfully at your whole life, even if the present is difficult – emphasized Bishop Waldemar Pytel, head of the Lutheran diocese of Wrocław.

We invite you to read the summary about the weeklong Festival.
