On 18 January, the first day of world celebrations of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2017, an ecumenical prayer service took place at the Sacré Coeur church in Geneva, Switzerland, drawing more than 70 people from various congregations and denominations.
If the worsening global inequality highlighted recently is to be tackled, world leadership must act “now”, in tangible ways, says World Council of Churches (WCC) general secretary, Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit, participating in the 2017 World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland this week.
The General Board of Global Ministries (GBGM), a mission agency of The United Methodist Church, hosted representatives from the World Council of Churches Commission on World Mission and Evangelism this week for a meeting to plan a World Mission Conference scheduled for March 2018.
