10th episode in the series “On the Trail of the Struggles” tells the story of the ecumenical movement

The tenth episode of the series “On the Trail of the Struggles: Grassroots movements paving the way for democracy and rights in Brazil” takes a look at the role played by the ecumenical movement in the long journey towards democratic construction and strengthening human rights in the country.

Two very special guests discuss the history of ecumenism and its relationship with human rights in Brazil. The first is Reverend Magda Guedes, an Anglican Episcopal Bishop, currently serving as the President of the National Council of Christian Churches of Brazil (Conselho Nacional de Igrejas Cristãs do Brasil: CONIC).

The second is theologian and Lutheran Pastor Walter Altmann, who throughout his pastoral life has held positions such as President of the Latin American Council of Churches (Conselho Latino-Americano de Igrejas: CLAI), Moderator of the World Council of Churches (WCC), member of the Council of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF), and President of the Evangelical Church of the Lutheran Confession in Brazil (Igreja Evangélica de Confissão Luterana do Brasil: IECLB).

The series is produced in partnership between the Brasil de Fato news outlet and the Ecumenical Coordination of Service (Coordenadoria Ecumênica de Serviço: CESE), celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2023.
