So here I am in Athens, 9-16 May, at the World Council of Churches' Commission on World Mission and Evangelism. Since I finish my work at CCOM on 30 June, this is really my swansong. The theme is right up my street, and the sub-theme crystallises the challenge very aptly: Called in Christ to be Reconciling and Healing Communities.

I have three functions at CWME. One is to link with members of the British and Irish contingent (as a delegated ecumenical representative). Another is to be a rapporteur for the event on behalf of the WCC. And a third, fitted in around the other two, is to deploy my press credentials on behalf of Ekklesia. I'll post the openers for my stories here, too.
