Synaxeis: Common witness in China

Yesterday, the afternoon schedule of the World Council of Churches (WCC) Conference on World Mission and Evangelism (CWME) kicked-off in Athens, Greece. Time proved to be packed with group discussions based on the plenary theme in the morning - "Come, Holy Spirit, heal and reconcile".


Among the ten parallel "synaxeis" (a Greek term meaning group discussions) - delegates from different countries, languages and specialisations gathered. A greatly inspiring presentation was given by the first ever Chinese delegation who explained the challenges of mission in China today.
