World Council of Churches General Secretary Greeting to Muslims at Eid al-Fitr, 2019

I am glad to have this opportunity to greet the many Muslim friends and colleagues of the World Council of Churches, and indeed all Muslims, as you celebrate the festival of Eid al-Fitr. And as we greet you warmly at this festive time and give thanks for all the good things that God gives us in our relationships with you, we are also aware of the many difficult challenges in the world that we are surely called to face together on the basis of our shared commitment to justice and peace for all people.
