FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The new Lausanne Global Conversation website has just launched, with an open invitation to evangelicals around the world. ‘From May, this online Conversation will be conducted in eight languages,’ said Naomi Frizzell, Director of Digital Media for Cape Town 2010: The Third Lausanne Congress on World Evangelization. ‘This is a genuine reflection of our belief that iron sharpens iron, and that there is wisdom in the counsel of many. We want to hear from Christian leaders from every continent,’ she added.
The Lausanne Global Conversation focuses on some of the toughest questions facing the Church. It will help to shape Congress discussions in October; it will also continue beyond the Congress.
A collaborative partnership with major radio networks has extended the reach of the Conversation into rural communities, and into local languages. Radio networks like TWR, FEBC, UCB and HCJB are creating and disseminating special programmes to engage their listeners on these issues. Responses will be collated by the local radio stations, translated, and fed into the wider Conversation.
‘This combination of radio waves and the internet brings a new moment for the Church,’ said Larry Russell, Associate Director of Cape Town 2010. ‘We invite you to play a part in it. The global church is facing pressing issues. As we engage with them together, under God’s direction, we will strengthen one another. Let us each bring our unique experience and insight, and share the gifts Christ has given us.’
This wide-ranging conversation will address issues such as religious pluralism, ethnic conflict, urbanization and the human future. Listen in, learn from others and add your voice at www.lausanne.org/conversation.
