Document Go in Peace
Bible study on John 14:27-31 by Néstor O. Míguez for the WCC Assembly, 7 November 2013: At the Last Supper, Jesus said, “peace.” When Jesus tells us about peace, the night before his betrayal and death, he is not speaking from a peaceful place in his own life. Where and what kind of peace are the church and the ecumenical movement talking about? God's peace is not temporary, and it does not have to do with happy events. Peace is a matter of life for those people who are yearning for it. At the end of the assembly, “go in peace” will be a biblical and missiological empowerment and mandate for us to bear witness to the vision of abundant life in the new heaven and earth.

Document Struggles for Justice in an Ambiguous World
Bible study on 1 Kings 21:1-22 by Sarojini Nadar for the WCC Assembly, 6 November 2013: The story of Naboth’s vineyard challenges the concept of justice in our society. It introduces God’s justice for the affirmation of life, a measure beyond the economic logic of King Ahab in the name of efficiency and productivity. The text can also guide us in dealing with current issues of injustice in the global market and in discerning how to live out God’s justice to safeguard life.
