Karlsruhe (dpa/lsw) - The plenary assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC) in Karlsruhe ended with an urgent appeal for Christian unity, also against the background of the Ukraine war. "It is human suffering that knows no bounds," said Agnes Abuom of the World Council of Churches (WCC) on Thursday at the final conference. It should not be forgotten that flesh and blood people in Ukraine and Russia are suffering from the war.
The assembly is the highest decision-making body of the WCC and is considered the "most inclusive gathering of Christians in the world". In addition to debates and resolutions on current issues, there were joint prayers and excursions.
