ASEAN and Sri Lanka Edinburgh 2010 conference ~ Mission as reconciliation in pluralistic contexts

The Edinburgh 2010 study process for ASEAN and Sri Lanka held its conference at STM in Malaysia on 8-11 June 2009. Delegates from Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore and Sri Lanka were joined by friends from Germany, New Zealand, the USA and the UK. The theme of the event was 'Mission as reconciliation in pluralistic contexts'.

The conference concluded, 'Reconciliation is possible because of what God has done through Christ. The reality of his presence has been experienced in the here and now in the midst of conflict situations', and prayed to see that 'the whole church brings the whole Gospel for the whole person to the whole world in holistic ways with holistic motives' so that God’s reign of peace, love, justice, light and joy will come upon the earth', believing that 'Christ will bring the final fulfillment of his promise of the reconciliation of all creation when he comes again in glory!'.
