About the Theme

Information about the theme and sub themes of the WCC 10th Assembly

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.

Please visit the resources section for a growing list of reflections on the assembly theme, offering a variety of testimonies on life, justice and peace from around the world.

Three sub themes indicate that simply praying, “God of life, lead us to justice and peace”, is not enough. Rather, God’s people are called to put prayer into action; called to live out their faith in hope and love.

  • Life together in Faith: Unity and Mission

  • Life together in Hope: for Justice, Peace and Reconciliation in the world

  • Life together in Love: for a Common Future
