”In an unprecedented move against the leadership of the World Council of Churches (WCC) and the ecumenical movement, WCC associate general secretary Prof. Dr Isabel Apawo Phiri was yesterday apprehended, interrogated and deported from Ben Gurion International Airport.”
WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit urged an immediate cessation of airstrikes and bombardments on Aleppo. The conflict in Aleppo, Syria, has intensified in recent months, with hundreds of thousands of people fleeing the city.
Colleagues, friends, happy faces and a strong sense of fellowship was the theme, as a group of staff from the WCC, the Pilgrims for Justice and Peace, participated in the Escalade race in Geneva on 3 December.
