  • [01] Christodoulos addresses World Council of Churches conference being held in Greece

    Sessions of an influential global conference on spiritual trends continued on Wednesday at the Aghios Andreas seaside summer resort east of Athens, where some 700 delegates from around the world gathered for conference, the first-ever held in Greece.

    The week-long conference is organised by the World Council of Churches.

    In addressing delegates, Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos stressed the need for safeguarding a Christian identity among all denominations and missionary activities vis-a-vis the modern era's challenges.

    The messages to a underscored the sense among many Christian pastors and scholars that churches need to sharpen their mission in an age of fast-paced economic restructuring and growing instability, such as the widening gulf between the West and Islam.

    "The consequences of globalisation, terrorism and the war on terror require that Christian churches rediscover their prophetic voice ... to raise their voice and be on the side of peace," Christodoulos told the gathering of Christian leaders, theologians and activists.

    "The growing effect of globalisation, as a cultural and not a financial phenomenon any more, the opening of national borders and the increasing movement of populations from one place to another puts our Christian witness in a totally different situation than in the past," he said, adding that the issue acquires a greater urgency after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
