Consultation on 50 Years of Occupation and the Ecumenical Response


Following recent “Consultation on 50 Years of Occupation and the Ecumenical Response,” held in the Holy Land, WCC general secretary Rev. Dr Olav Fykse Tveit said input received at the meeting will influence the WCC as it refines its strategies and programmes related to just peace in Palestine and Israel. 

The WCC will study and analyse an open letter from the National Coalition of Christian Organizations in Palestine describing the state of injustice in the Holy Land, in particular the coalition’s recommendations for how churches worldwide could potentially help bring justice and peace to Palestine and Israel.
