Divinity Professor Attends Gathering of Churches in Korea
A professor from the Divinity School attended the 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches (WCC) held October 30 to November 8 in Busan, Korea.
Dr. Jeaneth H. Faller, a professor of Christian Education, represented the Divinity School. The School and Silliman University are affiliated with the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP). UCCP is a member of WCC.
The 10th Assembly takes on the theme “God of life, lead us to justice and peace.” It is described on its website as covering “five dimensions of being the church together in the world today – koinonia (one faith and fellowship in Christ), martyria (witness in the world), diakonia (serving justice and peace), ecumenical formation (for leadership) and inter-religious cooperation (a common context).”
This year's event pooled around 2,000 participants from 345 member churches from different faith traditions around the world.
