Evangelization and social justice belong together - Bishop Geevarghese Mor Coorilos

03 June 2010, Edinburgh : The need to keep together evangelism and the quest for social justice was highlighted by a representative of an ecumenical mission body speaking at an international church conference in Edinburgh on 3 June. Bishop Geevarghese Mor Coorilos, from India, voiced a “growing concern that the prophetic voice [of the church] has been gradually diminishing in ecumenical circles including the World Council of Churches (WCC)”. Coorilos is the moderator of the WCC's Commission on World Mission and Evangelism. Speaking at the 2-6 June Edinburgh 2010 Conference, Coorilos said that “a false dichotomy between evangelical and ecumenical strands [of Christianity] is irrelevant”. However, he warned that “attempts at widening the ecumenical umbrella” should not dilute the “prophetic dimensions of mission”. “Passion for evangelism and quest for social justice should be held together”, he said.
