United Methodist Ecumenical Officer, Bishop Sally Dyck and Rev. Ann Jacob participated in last week's World Council of Churches Central Committee meeting in Geneva. In this photo they are joined by new WCC General Secretary Rev. Dr. Jerry Pillay.
At the Assembly in 2022 Bishop Dyck was named to the Executive Committee, and at this meeting she was also elected as Co-Moderator of the Permanent Committee on consensus and Collaboration (with H.E. Elder Metropolitan Emmanuel of Chalcedon, Ecumenical Patriarch).
In addition to elections for positions, the WCC celebrated its 75th anniversary, received many reports, and made several statements about climate change, inclusivity and unity. To read more details go to www.oikoumene.org and search for weekly newsletters.
