The World Council of Churches 11th General Assembly in Karlsruhe, Germany has come to an end. 

The theme “Christ’s love moves the world to reconciliation and unity”  shaped the gathering.

“A Call to Act Together”

An extremely diverse group of people gathered in Karlsruhe, Germany for the 11th General Assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC).  United by faith, they came from all regions of the world, from 352 member churches and ecumenical partners of the WCC. This is their message.
