WCC Agrees on Theme for Next General Assembly; Theme: "God of Life, Lead Us to Justice and Peace"

The theme of "God of life, lead us to justice and peace" was confirmed today (February 22, 2011) by members of the World Council of Churches' (WCC) deliberations for its next General Assembly, according to the Christian Today website.

The WCC said the theme was "not merely a slogan or motto" for the Assembly, but would provide a focus for theological reflection, worship, and meditation.

WCC General Secretary the Rev. Dr. Olav Fykse Tveit expressed his support for the outcome of the vote. "Seeking justice and peace is a call to unity," he told delegates.

The 10th Assembly of the WCC will take place in Busan, South Korea in 2013.
