Ecumenical encounter

Ecumenical encounter

From 3rd to 9th 2014 an ecumenical encounter happened with women from Halle, Berlin and Moscow. It happened as part of the women`s work of ELKER and was supported by the Gustav-Adolf-Werk. Lutheran and catholic women took part and visited the Martha and Maria- Convent in Moscow. We conversed with sisters of the Russian Orthodox Church. The encounter included bible work for the women from Germany and Moscow, common conversations and walks. It was the first time that such an encounter happened in the congregation of Moscow. Every participant liked it and it enriched our women`s work in the central deanery of ELKER. On their last day our guests visited the divine service with Holy Communion and enrollment celebration.
