The Challenge of Transformation

An Ecumenical Journey
Konrad Raiser

In this book covering the time from when he joined the World Council of Churches in 1969 as a young theologian from Germany to his period as WCC general secretary from 1993 to 2003, Konrad Raiser presents a first-person account of the ecumenical movement from the decisive turning point at the WCC’s Uppsala assembly in 1968 through to the challenges it faces today.

Spirituality of Unity

Dr Chiara Lubich, the founder and president of the Focolare movement for spiritual and social renewal, visited the World Council of Churches (WCC) on October 28 for worship and discussions on the "spirituality for unity" in all areas of life and humanity. After a rich exchange, Dr Lubich and Rev. Dr Konrad Raiser, WCC general secretary, issued a joint reflection on the theme to emphasize the "renewed hope for our common ecumenical journey".
