"… and forgive us our sins …"

(How) do sins and forgiveness feature in our faith and church services? - Online seminar on 4th May 2024.

Diese ELM-Seminarreihe beschäftigt sich mit der Zukunftsfähigkeit von Kirchen international. Gemeinsam mit Christ*innen aus der internationalen Ökumene machen wir uns auf die Suche nach kreativen und hoffnungsbewegten Lösungen für typische Probleme unserer Kirchengemeinden. Die Konferenzsprache ist Englisch.

This online seminar is part of a series on global ecumenical learning. Different aspects of church life in Germany and South Africa are discussed with the help of short inputs by speakers from both countries. This is followed by a conversation of all participants. We look forward to a vivid discussion with members of the worldwide church - like you.

A worldwide reality, which has become much more prevalent in the past century, is the movement of people internationally around the globe. This poses a challenge to our churches, to welcome people of diverse cultural and spiritual backrounds in their midst and to be transformed by them, in order to remain relevant.

The event will take place via Zoom. The participation link will be sent by email in advance. 

Saturday, 4th May 2024. Online seminar from 4pm (German time (MESZ) = South African time (SAST)). This online seminar will be held in English only.

Please register before 12 noon on 2nd May.
