I ask not only on behalf of these, but also on behalf of those who will believe in me through their word, that they may all be one.

As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

-- John 17:20-21, NRSV

"A Pilgrimage of Peace & Justice": A Dispatch from Knut Refsdal

By the Rev. Knut Refsdal, General Secretary of the Christian Council of Norway

    and member of OCUIR's Steering Committee 


 An ecumenical vision of justice and peace set the tone for the biennial meeting of the Central Committee of the World Council of Churches (WCC) in Geneva this summer.


The committee is the highest governing body of the WCC between  General Assemblies held every eight years.  This summer’s committee agenda included follow-up on resolutions and statements from the General Assembly in Busan, South Korea, last November.


The committee consists of 150 members from approximately 350 member churches.  In addition, many churches, councils of churches and other organizations send observers. Several hundred gathered in Geneva in June and July for the continuation of an important journey together as Christians. 


There was a positive and constructive atmosphere during the sessions led by new moderator Agnes Aboum, Anglican from Kenya. I especially liked the consensus method, something I hope will be used more in my own church.
