CONIC conducts opening seminar of the XVIII Assembly

The National Council of Christian Churches of Brazil (CONIC) held the seminar “Reconciled Diversity on the common table” between May 28th and 29th. The theme proposed for that activity is based on Ephesians 2:14: “… He is, in fact, our peace … He has destroyed the wall of separation: the hate “. On the 30th, the General Assembly will begin. The Sagrada Família Training Center, in São Paulo, hosts the meeting.

 

Seminar

Yesterday (28), the event had the presence of Kelli Monfort, who led a panel on Unreconciled diversities – analysis of the current context of polarization, violence and intolerance. Kelli is a pedagogue, master and PhD in Social Sciences from Unesp. Another confirmed presence was Daniel Souza, PhD in Theology by UMEP. Daniel presented the second panel: The faith in Jesus Christ points out to reconciliation.

On Wednesday 29th, activities begin in grand style: Lutheran pastor Walter Altmann, PhD in Theology and former moderator of the World Council of Churches (WCC) will speak on Spirituality – Interrupted reconciliation: historical rescue of documents on Eucharistic hospitality and the limits to the practice. His presentation will be followed by group work – reviewing imaginaries: the other as a threat.

 

Assembly

At 2 pm on the 29th, after the Seminar is over, the Assembly took place. In the agenda, among other matters, is the election of CONIC’s new board of directors.
