LWF European Diaconal Process – 3rd Workshop
The European Diaconal Process considers questions of spirituality, motivation and practice, which influence both the professional diaconal and pastoral work and “everyday life”. The response to populism, nationalism, racism and xenophobia are a key issue as are ecumenical and inter-faith working. The guiding orientation for the process is the concept of conviviality with the sub-themes of vocation, dignity and justice.
The projected result is the building up of an influential conviviality group that will be a resource to Lutheran churches. It will help them affirm diversity and contribute to public discourse by providing them with pedagogical material for use by local congregations, best practice examples for working with diversity in church and society and proposals for policy in church and the public realm.
