Overcoming violence

What has the WCC's Decade to Overcome Violence achieved since 2001, and what are the challenges for the second half of the Decade? Today's plenary combines a video review of the past five years with presentations by young people involved in overcoming violence - urban, structural, interpersonal, collective, and the kind that uses religion as a weapon - in their regions, and ends with a call for recommitment.

Spiritual life

"God, in your grace, transform our lives" is today's version of the Assembly prayer. Ezekiel 36:26-27 links the Assembly theme and the Decade to Overcome Violence's focus on the use, abuse and misuse of power, while the vision in Ezekiel 47:1-12 of water flowing from God's temple, reminds us of water's transforming and healing power in our lives.
