Christian ministries of service form theme of the Ecumenical Review

October 30, 2014

Diakonia, or the service ministry of the church, provides the theme for the October 2014 issue of The Ecumenical Review (ER), a quarterly journal published by the World Council of Churches  with Wiley Blackwell of Oxford.

“New Perspectives on Diakonia” was produced under the leadership of guest editors Dongsung Kim and Isabel Apawo Phiri. According to the editors’ introduction, the eight articles “provide diverse narratives of the various ways in which the Christians and churches are responding to the multiple crises threatening our world.”

Among the topics addressed are climate change and sustainability, development and community, economic justice and human dignity. Authors featured in ER include Beverley Haddad, Takeshi Komino, Isaiah Kepyegon Toroitich and Paulina Parhiala.
