Assemblies reveal impact of faith on world

Since 1983, the World Council of Churches and its assemblies have influenced the founding and ongoing publication of The Fig Tree newspaper.

Fig Tree editor Mary Stamp has attended assemblies since the 6th Assembly in Vancouver, BC, in 1983. A document on "Communicating Credibly" was part of the background in founding The Fig Tree in 1984.

This year, The Fig Tree is being represented by Mary, staff member Marijke Fakasiieiki and volunteers Catherine Ferguson and Gen Heywood, all as accredited press.

"We plan in this issue and online at to provide links for people here to gain a taste of the event. Because the Assembly is Aug. 31 to Sept. 8, we will provide coverage of it . . . . .
