“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. 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.

In these pages, I hope you’ll be able not only to sample the recent work of the WCC and its member churches. I hope you will also see your own deepest commitments brought to life in concrete—and hope-filled—ways through the ecumenical work of the WCC, its member churches and ecumenical partners.”
