Baden-Württemberg: Appeal for peace at the end of the World Council of Churches meeting

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.

More than 4,000 Christians from all over the world spent a good week in Karlsruhe discussing current issues. Under the motto "The love of Christ moves, reconciles and unites the world" they thought together about what contribution the churches can make to a peaceful and united society. In terms of content, topics such as global climate change and the Russian war of aggression in Ukraine dominated the General Assembly, which was in Germany for the first time.

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.
