The upcoming 10th Assembly of the World Council of Churches will be held in Busan, South Korea October 30- November 8, 2013. It will be more inclusive and welcoming of the wider ecumenical movement than before. And it will be planned and carried out in a spirit of madang (the traditional Korean “courtyard” connecting different parts of a house), inviting participants into a common space of discussion and celebration. You are cordially invited to join other faithful pilgrims in this historic event for Christian fellowship. I will be coordinating a special Visitors’ Program for PCUSA members.
