A few weeks back I asked you to please pray for the assembly of the World Council of Churches in Busan, South Korea. It was reported to the Ecumenical News Service that the meeting was a life-giving gathering to the worldwide Christian Community. After 11 days celebrating Christian diversity, the Council passed a number of public issue statements, followed by prayers. New presidents have been elected to serve the church grouping that represents some 560 million Christians globally from mainline, Anglican, Orthodox, and Protestant churches.On the eve of the assembly’s closure, President of the WCC for Europe, Dame Mary Tanner, told Ecumenical News, “it has been such an amazing gathering of Christians from every part of the world. We have experienced the breadth and depth of Christianity and heard stories of people live in broken societies, from places where there is war. We have worshipped and worked together and here we have received a feeling of the huge diversity of the Christian Church.”
In your prayers give thanks for the WCC and ask Our Lord to bless the work of our sisters and brothers who called to that ministry.
It is time to be thankful for many things in our lives, remember to be thankful for the Gift of Faith in Jesus.!
See you next week, you beautiful Baptized People of God!
