Building bridges of peace and friendship: General Assembly joins in peace prayer on the Danube

Posted by fidest press agency su martedì, 5 giugno 2018

By Astrid Weyermüller.“CEC believes in reconciliation, reconciliation between different political systems, and between estranged cultures. And today this includes the complexity and opportunity not only of an ecumenical Europe, but also an interreligious Europe and others of faiths and yet others of no overt faith,” says the president of CEC, Rt Rev. Christopher Hill. Novi Sad, the venue of the 2018 CEC General Assembly, witnessed just that during a peace prayer held on the Danube today. Commemoration, forgiveness, and hope were at the focus of this prayer.
A procession of delegates and participants started at the memorial commemorating the victims of the raid on Novi Sad in January 1942 during World War II. Hungarian armed forces occupying the region killed 1,246 civilians of the city, mainly Serbs and Jews, throwing their bodies into the Danube.The procession then passed underneath Varadinski Bridge and ended at the newly constructed Žeželj Bridge. Both bridges were destroyed during the 1999 NATO bombing of Yugoslavia. While the present Varadinski Bridge was reconstructed in 2000, the newly constructed Žeželj Bridge was only opened earlier this year.Commemorating all those who suffered from violence and atrocities, the archivist of Novi Sad Petr Djurdjev presented the history of the site on the riverbank.During intercessions the CEC delegates took this up with the following words: “We pray for those who have been forgotten and remain excluded in our world today that justice may flow down like a mighty stream. For peoples divided, that we may have the courage to ask for forgiveness and so be reconciled for the injustice we cause and the harm we do. For the people and land of Serbia who have known war and injustice in recent years, who, in this place, remember past atrocity.”
At the end of the procession four trees were planted near Žeželj Bridge as a sign of hope and reconciliation. CEC President Hill, Beate Fagerli (Church of Norway), Helen Kesete (Orthodox Church of Finland) and Metropolitan Porfirije (Serbian Orthodox Church) each planted one tree.
They will remain as a reminder of the words of prayer spoken earlier: “Like a great river, you nourish all, enabling us to become fertile ground, to become trees of righteousness, offering shade and bearing fruit. The fruits of the Spirt are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.”

Taking Differences in Identity and Culture

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 9 giugno 2010

Constanta (Romania) from 10-11 June 2010 the process comes to an end with an international consultation. The European Commission is currently developing a strategy for the Danube Region. Various projects in 14 countries from Germany to the Ukraine are intended to strengthen integration, overcome economic, social and cultural differences and improve environmental conditions around the Danube. CPCE, the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe, is taking part in the public consultation process along with CEC, the Conference of European Churches, and COMECE, the Commission of the Bishops’ Conferences in the European Community. The European churches welcome the transnational approach of the European Commission. “Cooperation and networking across boundaries are immensely valuable”, says the jointly submitted contribution to the consultation. The strategy embraces lands in East and West inside and outside the EU and so can help to advance the process of European integration. However, the churches’own experiences show that such processes require time and patience in order to grow.
Differences of identity and culture are deeply anchored in the region and must not be marginalised. The legacy of the East-West division still weighs heavily, say the churches. Here religion has played a part in various conflicts in the southern and eastern Danube Region. Peace in the region is not something to be taken for granted. : the “EU Strategy for the Danube Region”involves political measures in the fourteen countries of Austria, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Germany, Hungary Moldavia, Montenegro, Rumania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and the Ukraine. For this, the European Commission is working out a strateg, which the Council of Europe is intended to approve in 2011 under the Hungarian presidency.
At present 105 Protestant churches in Europe (including five South-American churches originating from Europe ) belong to the Community of Protestant Churches in Europe (CPCE). Lutheran, Reformed, United and Methodist along with pre-Reformation churches such as Hussites and Czech Brethren grant each other pulpit and table fellowship on the basis of the Leuenberg Agreement of 1973. The Secretariat is housed in the Severin-Schreiber-Gasse 3, A-1180 Vienna,
