Several Activities (E) Global Christian Forum (GCF)

Inviting by Dr. Samuel Nafzger, International Lutheran Council (ILC) Executive Secretary, to represent the ILC, Pastor Carlos participated at the Global Christian Forum (GCF) - November 6th to 9th, in Limuro (near Nairobi), Kenya. The MISSION of the GCF is "To create an open space wherein representatives from a broad range of Christian churches and interchurch organizations, which confess the Triune God and Jesus Christ as perfect in His divinity and humanity, can gather to foster mutual respect, to explore and address together common challenges".

"As a wide variety of Christian leaders, men and women coming from 72 nations and six continents, from a broad range of churches, confessions and organizations, we rejoice at the unprecedented opportunity we have enjoyed in Limuru, Kenya, from 6 to 9 November 2007. We the 245 participants have reflected on our journeys with Jesus Christ the Reconciler." This is the beginning of the "Message from the Global Christian Forum to Brothers and Sisters in Christ Throughout the World". Read the complete document at
