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

National Workshop on Christian Unity
Seeking Justice at the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches
Peace PlenaryThe assembly engaged in deep reflection on one of the stated themes of the gathering—justice. In the day’s thematic plenary, we were challenged and inspired to engage in God’s work of justice in the world. We heard about greed and poverty, war, HIV/AIDS, and human rights and we were reminded that the God of life calls us to sharing in God’s justice. Malaysian journalist and Geneva-based South Center executive director told us “do not give charity but tackle the sinful structures that give rise to poverty.” South African pastor and activist Phumzile Mabizela called us to action, stating that our prayers must accompany our work for justice. She said “prayer on its own will not bring us justice"


World Council of Churches 10th Assembly: In Mission Together
WCC 10th Assembly photoEach day of the General Assembly a theme is interlaced throughout the Bible study, daily thematic plenary session, and prayer services. On Monday I was anxious for the assembly theme: mission. As a United Methodist missionary serving through the United Methodist mission agency (the General Board of Global Ministries) the ‘mission’ theme seemed particularly relevant to my work in Moscow.


The new WCC mission document—Together Toward Lifewas the centerpiece of the day.

Ecumenical Conversation on Caring For God's Earth
Bishop Sally DyckDuring the 10th General Assembly delegates and participants gather in various groups for ecumenical conversations to explore the assembly theme “God of life, lead us to justice and peace.” The ecumenical conversations are meant to provoke and inspire people to Christian action. My ecumenical conversation is on eco-justice or care for God’s earth. Prior to attending the Assembly, delegates and observers alike signed up for one of the 21 ecumenical conversations. There are church leaders from Africa, Asia, Europe, the South Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East but there are few if any people from the US in the group.
