The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women is deeply shocked by the attacks in Paris committed in the name of religion. This is not our understanding of faith.
We believe in a God of life and peace, of love and mercy. We believe in dialogue and communication instead of violence and death. Killing is not the solution of coping with our differences and conflicts.
We stand in solidarity with our French sisters and brothers and feel with them in their grieve and losses.
"The Ecumenical Forum of European Christian Women" was represented by Martina Heinrichs, former Co President, who gave a presentation of women's rights in the churches in Europe - in the aftermath of the Ecumenical Decade of Churches in Solidarity with Women, an item which was followed up by Fulata Moyo from the World Council of Churches. Martina talked also about the diversity of women in the ecumenical European movement, about feminist theology and - last but not least - about the Forum's project "Pop Up Monastery".
