Entitled “Sharing faith, nurturing hope”, the World Council of Churches (WCC) Annual Review 2017 is now available in four languages: English, French, German and Spanish.

The annual review of the WCC records many of the activities undertaken by the council during 2017 and continuing into 2018.

“Over the last year, I believe that we in the fellowship of churches and the ecumenical movement have experienced stronger ties with each other and deeper engagement with the world”, reflects WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit in the foreword. “This experience, occasioned by the Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, now leads us to new vistas on the fellowship itself and the classic quest for visible unity.”

Tveit continues, “Grounded in the ongoing presence of the Resurrected Lord, Christian hope envisions and strives for the reign of God on earth as in heaven, with justice and life abundant for all. Let us work and walk there together.”
