2025: un año ecuménico en la peregrinación de justicia, reconciliación y unidad

En su empeño por renovar la búsqueda de unidad de las iglesias y de toda la humanidad, el CMI y la comunidad ecuménica en general encuentran inspiración en dos importantes aniversarios que tendrán lugar en 2025:
- El 1700º aniversario del Primer Concilio Ecuménico de Nicea en 325
- El 100º aniversario de la Conferencia Cristiana Universal sobre la Vida y el Accion, celebrada en Estocolmo en 1925

Este folleto destaca las actividades y eventos del CMI que conmemorarán estos dos acontecimientos, pero también otros aniversarios significativos.

Salvemos las vidas de los niños

Guía para una banca responsable
Frederique Seidel
Jodie Salter

La emergencia climática representa la amenaza más peligrosa para la vida de los niños y las niñas y la supervivencia de las generaciones futuras. Los combustibles fósiles –carbón, petróleo y gas– son, con diferencia, los que contribuyen más significativamente a la emergencia climática mundial, ya que suponen más del 75 % de las emisiones mundiales de gases de efecto invernadero y casi el 90 % de todas las emisiones de dióxido de carbono (CO2). Por este motivo, detener nuevas inversiones en la expansión de los combustibles fósiles es una de las maneras más eficaces de agilizar las soluciones climáticas y salvar las vidas de los niños.

Iglesias promotoras de la salud, Tomo II

Manual para acompañar a las iglesias en el establecimiento y la gestión de ministerios de promoción de la salud sostenibles

It provides a theological and public health basis of the Health Promoting Churches (HPC) model and a guide on organizing the HPC programme sustainably.

Peregrinos en el camino de la paz

El recorrido del CMI de Busan a Karlsruhe (Illustrated)

This report, received by the WCC central committee in February 2022, is the accountability report of the central committee to the WCC 11th Assembly, describing and offering an assessment of the activities of the WCC, since the 10th Assembly, in Busan, Republic of Korea, in late 2013.

This illustrated version is a narrative of a fellowship of churches committed to moving together on a Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace, conveying something of the energy, excitement, ambition, and initiative that have marked the WCC’s journey since Busan. It aims to assist assembly delegates to understand the council’s journey in this period and help them actively participate in the assembly, and to share the ecumenical vision reflected in the WCC’s activities with member churches, partners, and the wider fellowship.

This report is available in English, Spanish, French, and German.

Libro de recursos

To that end, the Resource Book will function as a ready documentary reference and resource for assembly delegates as well as other participants.

Translations to follow.

Al ver las multitudes - Estudios bíblicos

When He Saw the Crowds - Bible Studies 

Und da er das Volk sah - Bibelstudien 

Voyant les foules - Études bibliques 

Al ver las multitudes - Estudios bíblicos

The plenary Bible studies are an important aspect of the work of the assembly. They give participants an opportunity to meet daily around a Bible passage to reflect on the theme and the experience of the assembly. Participants can discern together God’s purposes for themselves and the ecumenical movement. They meet in groups which are small enough to allow everyone to contribute and large enough to give a range of perspectives. The Bible study sessions provide an opportunity for participants to explore the assembly theme together in the light of the biblical texts, knowledge, and experience. To be involved in group Bible study is to be open to one another, to the Bible passage and to the Holy Spirit. It is not to win an argument or to persuade others to a particular point of view. These sessions should be a place where the participants can integrate all they have heard and done in the assembly and discover together the possibilities of transformation that God offers us.
