Third "Explorations in Evangelism" meeting - Communique on evangelism and the legacies of colonization and enslavement

During the "Explorations in Evangelism" meeting in Toronto (Canada) international scholars, theologians and clergy wrestled with the long-term and lingering effects of Christian involvement in colonization on the identities of individuals and communities today.The meeting, held June 22-28, was the latest in a series of “Explorations in Evangelism” organized by the World Council of Churches and the Council for World Mission. The project explores the work in evangelism at the grassroots level in different regions and contexts.
