WCC annual review 2020 cover

A year of unexpected challenges also brought unexpected blessings, and the annual review tells stories of both.

Our experiences together during 2020—though much of that togethernessoccurred online—certainly brought unexpected challenges,” writes acting general secretary Rev. Prof. Dr Ioan Sauca in the foreword. But through these challenges, our experiences also brought unexpected blessings, not least in how we have come to work even more closely than before with our sisters and brothers in regional ecumenical organisations.”

The annual review also shares stories of how churches are working together to heal a wounded world. As I see compassionate and concrete acts of love carried out in solidarity, I find hope,” writes Sauca. As I see how we have deeply internalized the view of ourselves as one human family, I find hope.”
