Resolution 29 - The World Council of Churches

Resolution 29

The World Council of Churches

The Conference urges that, in this thirtieth anniversary year of the World Council of Churches, all Churches of the Anglican Communion reaffirm their support and strengthen their understanding of this body, which is not only the most comprehensive expression of the ecumenical movement, but also the chief vehicle of world-wide ecumenical co-operation and service. It also asks the World Council of Churches to accept the guidance given through Section 3 of the Conference, considering war and violence:

(1) to re-examine our complicity with violence in its many forms; (2) to take with the utmost seriousness the question which the teaching of Jesus places against all violence in human relationships.
