God of life, lead us to justice and peace
The theme of the assembly was inspired by the diversity of Asian contexts and by a growing sense of urgency to care for life and seek justice. It is both a prayer and a statement of faith, calling Christians to engage with God’s vision of justice and peace, so that all may have life in fullness.
The assembly logo is inspired by Isaiah 42.1-4 and the mission of God’s chosen servant to faithfully bring forth justice to every coastland – the servant who will not be crushed until justice is established in all the earth.
It depicts life breaking forth from the ground – through rocks and chains – growing upwards, bringing God’s justice to all the earth. At the centre of the logo is an image of the tree of life – of Christ present in the world – carrying God’s justice to every corner of the earth on the wings of three birds.
