Two new interactive websites have been launched by the World Council of Churches (WCC) to help promote strong engagement of churches with the vision of a ‘pilgrimage of justice and peace’. This is the overarching theme for the various programmes and activities of the WCC developed at the WCC 10th Assembly held in 2013 in Busan, Republic of Korea.
www.wccpilgrimage.org offers resources for congregations, organisations and groups to discern their particular path in the pilgrimage. The website encourages sharing and learning from each other’s experiences. The site connects to discussions in social media, using a set of dedicated hashtags.
Reflections on the pilgrimage theme and how it relates to the lives of the churches in various parts of the world, and to justice and peace issues that Christians are confronting in their communities, are at the heart of the second new site, http://blog.oikoumene.org.
