The opening of the Meeting of the Executive Committee of the World Council of Churches (W.C.C.) took place at the Royal Hotel in Amman of Jordan on Friday 4th/17th November 2017, and the proceedings were due to last until Thursday 10th/23rd November 2017.
The hosted by the Jerusalem Patriarchate Executive Committee is going to deal with issues of the World Council of Churches, as decided by the General Meeting of the W.C.C. in South Korea, based on the principle that the Churches-members of the W.C.C. remain in it, working on a “Pilgrimage of Justice and Peace”. The W.C.C. has many supporters on this mission, and especially on the occasion of the 500-year anniversary since Luther’s reform.
The proceedings of the Executive Committee were blessed by H.H.B. our Father and Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos, who was escorted by Geronda Secretary-General Archbishop Aristarchos of Constantina. His Beatitude welcomed the Chief Secretary of the W.C.C. Rev. Olav Tveit and the other members-representatives of the Churches as per the link below;
