This year’s material was prepared for worldwide use by the churches in Germany based around the verses 2 Corinthians 5:14-20.
There are fifty million Christians in Germany who, traditionally, have mostly belonged to the Roman Catholic Church or one of the Protestant State Churches. Recent developments, particularly the reception of refugees and asylum seekers, have begun to change this balance and other Christian traditions are nding expression. Whilst that which unites the churches is stronger than that which divides, there are still areas of di erence in which the churches remain self-absorbed or construct new walls.
The text from 2 Corinthians announces that God has, in Christ, reconciled the world to himself. The love of Christ compels us to be ambassadors of this reconciliation, which is enacted by dismantling the walls. With the fall of the Berlin Wall, Germany experienced how a seemingly insurmountable wall could be brought down. The fall of this wall is a symbol of hope that, with the love of God, nothing is impossible.
The printed pamphlet contains the service outline along with Bible readings, reflections and prayers for the eight days for use at home, in church or in a group.
