[World Council of Churches] People attending the Global Christian Forum heard from World Council of Churches general secretary the Rev. Jerry Pillay on the opening day of its fourth global gathering, held this week in Accra, Ghana, under the theme “That the World May Know.”

“As we gather as the 4th Global Gathering of the Global Christian Forum under the inspiring theme ‘That the World May Know (John 17:23b),’ we are reminded of the profound significance of our shared commitment to Christian unity and cooperation,” Pillay said in his message, noting that the Global Christian Forum is also marking its 25th anniversary this year.
